Example Forecast 26/11/11 – 27/11/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A highly fluid pressure situation with deep pressure systems moving great distances over the period, add to the complexity of the scenario. Hang on tight here it comes……there will be a Low off the Norwegain North Coast at 960 millibars, a fatter Low of 992 millibars off the East Coast of Greenland, between Greenland and Iceland. Another Low of 988 millibars will move from the Northern Mid-Atlantic to be South of Iceland over the period, bringing copious amounts of swell with it. By midday on Saturday, this Low will have moved to be South of Iceland and will have deepened to 982 millibars by having sucked in the Eastern Greenland Low. The High action as indicated earlier in the week will be big stretching from the Southern Mid-Atlantic, Galicia / Portugal and into Central France / Europe at between 1025 millibars to 1032 millibars. On Sunday the High will be in the afore mentioned locations and will vary from between 1028 millibars to 1032 millibars at times. The Low now North of Scotland having moved slightly East will be 970 millibars and with tightly packed isobars with a large cold front passing over the whole of the UK. As the day goes on this Low will continue in it’s Eastward track towards the middle of Norway, impacting at midday in the 960 millibar range. As a result of all the High and the Low’s movements over the period, (and their respective depths) their winds will be very strong in places. So it is important to read your respective areas to make the most of what there is. But it should also be noted that with so much happening things could be delayed by 12 hrs or so, or for that matter speed up too. So take it all in, and adjust it as you work your way through the period……...

OVERALL

The Scottish North and East Coasts will be cranking this weekend, the East Coast of the UK will be small but clean if enough gets in, it will be small but fun. The South Coast will also be fun generally and challenging with swell, particularly on Sunday. The South West looks okay-ish on Saturday, but with in ya face winds on Sunday, except for a couple of spots. Wales will obviously fair better and the spots that can handle the winds in Pembrokeshire and the Gower will be good. So swell everywhere, it’s just the winds that will be the factor; some wind dodging is definitely needed to get the best of what there is. Search and ye shall find……..

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.
