Example Forecast 07/01/12 – 08/01/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday’s Central Greenland Low of 980 millibars, will move down South and East towards Iceland where it will split in two, and continue moving South East into the Northern North Sea and then into Norway by Midday on Saturday. Meanwhile a North Western Galician High of 1036 millibars will extend in area to encompass much of the Bay of Biscay, and by Midday on Sunday it may well reach as far as Brittany, the Channel islands and South West England. Back in the North around Greenland another Low of 984 millibars will develop off Southern Greenland and then move up the Greenland Coast through the Denmark Strait between Iceland as it then moves into the Southern Greenland Sea by late Sunday / Monday. So as you can see things are mainly Northern based swell-wise, with clearly the main pulse being on Saturday as the Low pushes past Scotland and into the Northern North Sea. There will also be residual / wrap-around swell wrapping down into Northern, Western Ireland and then into the South West of England and Wales, peaking again on Saturday. But the winds will be strong for most places, so shelter from either the winds or waves if you’re in Scotland will be crucial - search and you shall find…….

OVERALL

A couple of Scottish North Coast spots may well be able to handle things, but mainly the East Coast of Scotland and the English East Coast are the spots to head for. Everywhere else will need a bit of wind avoidance to get the best of what there is. Hunt and as ever you will be rewarded……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun South Coast weekend throughout for you guys, the East Coast will also be fun, especially around Norfolk – ideal for you guys. Wales will also be manageable for you too……hunt 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.
