Example Forecast 17/12/11 – 18/12/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1030 millibars stretching from Spain to the Azores will be in the near Mid-Atlantic on Saturday, whilst to the North East of Scotland a Low of 980 millibars will be moving East in the Norwegian Sea towards Norway where it will hit later in the day. Sunday will see another Low in the 990 millibar range squeeze through the Mid-Atlantic High (which will be slightly weaker at 1028 millibars). This will mean that there is a High to the to the South of the UK and another weaker but fat pressure system to the North West over Greenland and Iceland, with a minor Low pushing up[ the Channel. Clearly with all these systems moving around there will be changes, so make sure you stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Parts of Eastern Scotland and the East Coast would be our first thoughts, followed by some Welsh spots that can handle the winds. Finally some of the South Coast in the far South West would be our final call. But stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Big-ish with onshore winds for most West Coast spots, probably best to go East, or South to find something more bearable / rideable for you guys. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may 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.
