Example Forecast 21/01/12 – 22/01/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Friday’s Low of 974 millibars East of Iceland will be the main feature over the weekend, as it looks to fill a bit and drop down into the North Sea in the 984 millibar range on Saturday. It will be supplemented by a fat Newfoundland Low of 1000 millibars which will move East and combine with another small fat Greenland Low later on Saturday. The new Low will continue moving South East on Sunday and combine with the dropping Low East of Scotland / in the Northern North Sea. In doing so it will clearly pass by / over Northern Scotland. Meanwhile in the West / Mid-Atlantic an extensive High pressure of 1036 millibars will stretch from the Azores into Northern Spain. This huge High pressure will remain in situ over the period, although if anything it will squashed somewhat on Sunday as a Nova Scotian Low will move East squashing it as the Low moves North East towards Scotland on Monday. All this will mean Westerly / North Westerly winds in general due to the location of the High and the Northerly based track of the Low pressures. Read your specific area and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

An East Coast weekend, and some South Coast fun searching is the call. Wales will also have some clean and rideable spots. But, stay tuned for further updates, as things may well 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.
