Example Forecast 14/01/12 – 15/01/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big High pressure of 1032 millibars will be over the mainland UK late on Friday and into Saturday, it will hover and remain in situ for much of the period. A Low of about 990-ish millibars West of Iceland on Saturday will slowly move down and into the Mid-Atlantic, sandwiched between a North American High (off the North Eastern American seaboard) and our own UK centric High. By Sunday the UK centered High will be moving slowly East and South East into the North Sea and Europe as it goes. Clearly as Sunday goes on the Low and it’s associated swell will start to move into South Western Coastal areas. Read your specific area and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The North Scottish Coast is by far the best call, everywhere else will be more or less an also run. The runner-up prize at this time would go to Wales overall, and a few South Coast spots on Sunday. Having said that though, the South West swell amplifying spots will be the call for Saturday! ;0) Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed weekend in the South West, so perhaps a bit of North Coats on Saturday and South Coast on Sunday is the way forward. Failing that Wales will be another good bet for you guys, being very manageable. 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.
