Example Forecast 02/07/11 – 03/07/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok, well the situation is a bit clearer than earlier in the week, although very similar! But it stands like this…….a Low of 10004 millibars will be off the North West Coast of Scotland and Ireland, South West of Iceland on Midday Saturday. A minopr High of 1024 millibars in the Northern North Sea, and a fat Low of 1010 millibars over Spain will complete the picture. Sunday will see the situation remain more or less unchanged, except a minor Low with it’s associated front will start to move Eastwards from the Eastern Coast of the North America. This will all mean a relatively stable pressure scenario for the period, but the disadvantage will be that the winds may be variable at times, producing onshore sea breezes for a lot of places, whilst also calming down and going offshore for an hour or two, too. So if it looks good, don’t waste time, get in there and have fun, as it may not hold for long.

OVERALL

Forget the East and South Coasts, the best hopes are North West Scotland, followed by deepest darkest Wales, Devon and Kernow. But you will need to head for swell amplifying spots, otherwise you may find it a bit gutless, especially on Saturday. Winds will be changeable sea breezes, so if it looks ok, get in there and make the most of it!

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
