Example Forecast 29/10/11 – 30/10/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Two Low’s one just East of Iceland at 984 millibars with another South West of Iceland / West of Eire at 988 millibars (this Low has moved-up from the Mid-Atlantic from Friday). A third big Low of 979 millibars will start to leave the influence of Eastern North America too, and move into the Mid-Atlantic (getting ready to head our way on Sunday). Meanwhile a weak High of 1024 millibars will be over France, which will turn the winds as they come in from the Low’s making them more favourable over the period. Sunday will see Saturday’s Low’s having moved North East into the Norwegian Sea, the near Atlantic Low will be replaced by the Eastern North American Low, which will fill slightly and move into the Mid-Atlantic and our area of influence at 978 millibars. The French High will remain in situ on Sunday, so winds will remain more or less the same for Sunday as they were on Saturday (although they may be more South Westerly). So a big-ish weekend, make sure you read your individual area to get the best of what there is.

OVERALL

Looking good for Sunday for all Western Coasts and Northern Scotland, as the swell jumps overnight on Saturday. Big and challenging, enjoy ! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The swell will jump a lot overnight on Saturday, and by Sunday you guys will have to find super sheltered spots which more than halve the swell - the usual NQ Town beaches and the so forth are your best call / option.

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.
