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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

All the Low action (as suggested earlier in the week) will be Northerly based over the period. Friday’s Low East of Iceland will combine with a Low coming off Greenland / West of Iceland all in the 980 millibar range. The Low will drop from the North Atlantic on Saturday down past the Shetland Isles and into the Northern North Sea deepening as it goes to 976 millibars. Meanwhile to the West a new weak Low will track East from Newfoundland to add to the scenario. In the South however the area will be dominated by a High pressure of 1036 millibars stretching from the Azores into Northern Spain and the Bay of Biscay. Sunday will see the Newfoundland Low merging with the other North Sea Low’s which in turn will drop into Germany on their Eastward track, whilst condensing the High pressure around the Azores. 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.

OVERALL

A mixed and difficult one really, read your individual areas to get the best of what there is - hunting and shelter will be the key wherever you are. Our call would be parts of the East Coast and some South Coast spots, wherever you go, mind the winds , they will be strong…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed lumpy bag for all West Coast areas, we would recommend the South Coast or the East Coast particularly Norfolk. If you do head West do play it safe in you insist on going in…..

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.
