Example Forecast 11/02/12 – 12/02/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok well pretty much as described earlier in the week, we will be dominated by a High of 1032 millibars, but with two bigger entities (High’s!) - one to the East over Scandinavia at 1040 millibars, and the other West of us at 1036 millibars. Between these two High pressure systems a small Low of 1028 millibars will move up from Biscay and into Ireland. This initial Low will be followed by two other weak ones in about the 1028 millibar range moving up from the Azores into Biscay and up again towards Ireland. By Sunday though the High pressure of 1040 millibars to the East of us will start to move West, pushing it’s Easterly brother West too, the combination of these two Highs moving around will block any Azorean minor Low’s that remain, occluding what is left of them. While all this is happening a Nova Scotian Low of 996 millibars will move up through the North Western Atlantic towards the Southern of Greenland, on Saturday before moving across the Denmark Straight and towards Iceland on by Sunday, before heading East through the Norwegian Sea and into Norway. All this action will mean variable winds for the England and Wales at times, so make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

The South West and some Welsh spots are the call for Saturday, by Sunday it’ll be smaller and lumpier. Everywhere else will be mediocre at best really……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Clean and fun, maybe a bit challenging for you on Saturday in the South West, watch and learn. Sunday will be a lot smaller, and lumpier with the winds.

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.
