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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As Friday ends a Low of 990 millibars West of Ireland in the near Atlantic will be a good swell provider, by Saturday this Low will have dropped down West of Galicia filling as it goes to 1002 millibars. A huge Low of 960 millibars meanwhile will move East from North America to Greenland, pushing an Greenland / Icelandic Low down West of Ireland on Saturday – this Low will be in the 990 millibar range. As the huge Low continues it’s movement over the period, Saturday’s Irish Low will be pushed down in a Southerly direction, being South West of Ireland in the 1002 millibar range by midday on Sunday. All the High pressure action will be over North Eastern Europe / Russia at 1040 millibars providing favourable winds for much of the West Coast of the UK. Clearly the good news is that there will be a significant dose of swell as a result of these Low pressure systems dropping down the West Coast of Ireland over the period (and the huge North American Low pushing all the systems around). The winds will be generally favourable for Western / North Western UK Coasts over the period, due to positioning of the Eastern European / Russian High.

OVERALL

Still very much a cranking weekend in parts of Scotland and all of the Western Coasts, search and you should score big time.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A very challenging weekend for you guys in the South West, make sure you know the drop-in rule, and don’t get in the way of surfers riding waves. Size will be a real issue for you on Saturday, shelter is the key for you guys, find some and you’ll have fun.

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.
