Example Forecast 17/12/11 – 18/12/11 – Friday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok well if you hadn’t already gathered this whole week and the weekend is a fluid process with lots of moving targets, We have to make sense of it all, but do read this as if things get delayed or accelerated it is always a good idea to know what is happening around you, so you can adjust to the conditions. Fridays action will set the pace for the weekend, with a fast moving Low that tracks up the Channel in the 988 millibar range, another Low of 988 millibars North West of Scotland and a third of 968 millibars in the Norwegian Sea. A High of 1031 millibars stretching from Spain to the Azores will be in the near Mid-Atlantic on Saturday, whilst to the North East of Scotland Friday’s deep Low of 968 millibars will have remained more or less in situ, slowly moving North up the Norwegian Coast over Saturday. The Spanish High will remain for Sunday and start to dominate the West of the UK even more, making winds North Westerly virtually everywhere. Clearly with all these systems moving around things will be hectic so read your individual areas to make the most of what there is……

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 spots in the far South West would be our final call. So hunt and you may well find, worth a look at least…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Very big with onshore winds for most all West Coast spots, probably best to go East, or South to find something more bearable / rideable. Norfolk would be ideal for you guys…..

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.
