Example Forecast 18/02/12 – 19/02/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Right well is pretty much the same as predicted earlier in the week, a High of 1040 millibars off the South Western Coasts on Friday will be pushed down in to Biscay and out West towards the Azores over the period. Weakening as it goes to 1028 millibars by Sunday, all this will be due to a series of Low’s that emanate out of Iceland at the latter end of the week. By Friday and into Saturday a combined Low of 984 millibars will cross over Iceland heading towards the Norwegian Sea and the West Coast of Norway. Another Low will move up from Nova Scotia towards Southern Greenland in the 996 millbar range, this will be followed by yet another Low in the same range that will move up from North America on Sunday.

OVERALL

Lumpy and onshore for the South West (except Sat AM perhaps), the South Coast and Wales are the better option. But the East Coast is the place to be on Sunday with head high plus waves and offshore winds. Hunting is the call to make the best of what there is……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A bit of a mixed bag, the South Coast and Wales on Saturday, then Norfolk for Sunday. Norfolk especially would be an ideal call for you guys size-wise / condition-wise on Sunday. Hunt and ye shall find……..! ;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.
