Example Forecast 27/08/11 – 28/08/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right well a complicated scenario, so hang on tight as things are moving fast……...two Low’s in the 1000 millibar range on Thursday will fatten for Friday, but will remain on the West Coast of the UK and Eire as Friday ends. Whilst a new Low of again of about 1000 millibars will move out of Northern Europe into the Southern North Sea. By Saturday all the Low action will be in the North Sea as the Northern European Low tracks rapidly North to sit off the Scottish East Coast by midday at about 990 millibars. The West Coast during this time will have seen it’s Lows fill as a big Mid-Atlantic High of 1024 millibars will be moving slowly in. This High will encompass Biscay and the Western Coast of Ireland as Saturday ends. So Sunday will see High pressures to the West of us and a Low off North Eastern Scotland at 994 millibars. This system will then in turn be pushed East by the Western High for Monday. Make sure you read your respective areas to get the best of what there is……..

OVERALL

The Scottish East Coast on Sunday would be our call by far, everywhere else looks mediocre. Although in the South West at times the wind may drop and you may get it clean-ish (but don’t hold your breath!) – Sunday will see it drop quite a bit – a real Summer scenario. The East Coast will have swell (clearly due to the Low off the Scottish East Coast), but the swell will not initially get in properly, due to the strong cross-offshore winds - but it will build a tad for Sunday. So a real mixed bag, will depend on your luck and your karma! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Good waves to learn on for you guys in the South West on Saturday, but it will get smaller for Sunday. But there will also be swell on the East Coast, so you could head there?! – remember, there’s always another option! ;0)

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.
