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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As previously forecast 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 994 millibars West of Iceland and another North in the Denmark Strait on Saturday will both try and get through into the High pressure area. The Low West of Iceland will slowly move down (in a finger like way) and into the Mid-Atlantic, heading towards Galicia and Portugal. On Sunday the UK centered High will be moving slowly East and South East into the North Sea and North Eastern Europe as it goes. As Sunday goes on the Low and it’s associated swell will start to move into South Western Coastal areas, the advantage of the High will be that as it moves East / South East the winds associated with it will be predominantly Easterly / South Easterly too in direction. Read your individual areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

The North Scottish Coast looks fun overall, second best will be the South West, although head for swell amplifying spots with shelter from the winds to get the best of what there is. There will also be waves on the South Coast, although the more West you are at South Westerly facing spots, the cleaner and more fun it will be. A bit of searching will be needed everywhere, but it will be worth the hunting……! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun weekend for you in the South West, surf will pick-up a bit more for Sunday, so be careful, but enjoy! :0)

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.
