Example Forecast 24/09/11 – 25/09/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big deep Low of 982 millibars just South East of Iceland off the North West of the Northern UK, this Low will chuck cold fronts stretching the full length of the Western UK on Saturday. Meanwhile in Eastern Europe a High of 1020 millibars will be the counter balance, but in fact the depth of the Icelandic Low will so big that the High’s influence will be slight to non-existent in reality. Sunday to start with will see the Low move slightly North to be just South of Iceland at 988 millibars, so still strong / deep. As a result of the depth of the Icelandic Low and the associated fronts a new minor Low South West of Ireland will develop, albeit minor at about 996 millibars. This secondary Low will move rapidly North pushing the Icelandic Low Eastwards. Again we will see the High in Eastern Europe now at 1020 millibars, and as the Low’s move North and East the winds will be South in no small part to the continued presence of the High.

OVERALL

The Scottish North and North West Coasts look fun, if you hunt a little. Wales will be a bit smaller, but still fun; the South West will be the bigger and cleaner as the weekend goes on. So a fun one almost everywhere to an extent, read your specific area to make the most of what there is……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The South West might be a bit challenging for you, head for sheltered spots or Wales to shave a foot or two off. If you do head to the South West make sure you know the priority rule / the rules of the road and always look left and right! ;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.
