Example Forecast 12/11/11 – 13/11/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As Friday ends a Low of 990 millibars South West of Eire in the near Atlantic will be a good swell provider, by Saturday the this Low will have dropped down West of Galicia filling as it goes to 1002 millibars. Another Low of 999 millibars meanwhile will come down East from Greenland (originally), being North West of Ireland by Saturday midday. Sunday will see this North West Irish Low drop again (like the previous one) to be South West of Eire by midday. All this movement will be due to North American High pressure movements pushing these Low’s around at our end of the pond (without having a negative impact for us / effecting us directly much at this stage). The High that will effect us will be Eastern European / Russian based providing favourable winds for much of the West Coast of the UK. Clearly the good news is that there will be lots of swell and generally favourable winds due to positioning of the Eastern European High. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

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.
