Example Forecast 23/07/11 – 24/07/11 – Thursday Evening Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok, well as ever with High pressures and the passage of time, things have changed radically, so hang on tight to get the full score. A High pressure of 1020 millibars will stretch from off North Eastern Iceland all the way down to Galicia and beyond, with the centre being over the Azores at 1028 millibars. A Low off South Eastern Greenland / North Eastern North America at 995 millibars will be the only Atlantic action, but the afore mentioned High will make sure it doesn’t really ever get in and keeps it’s track North to Iceland. However, the Baltic Sea Low as mentioned earlier in the week will have deepened due to the Eastern European Highs having squeezed it more. Consequently it will be in the 996 millibar range, before it breaks out into the Eastern North Sea, where it will hover again and then slowly move down towards Germany / the Netherlands. In this phase of it’s life on Sunday it will be in the high 990 millibar range; but due to the strength and general circling of the High pressures all around us over the period, although not ubber deep it’s strength / effect will be magnified. So without a doubt an East Coast weekend, make sure you read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

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.
