Example Forecast 25/02/12 – 26/02/12 – Tuesday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A similar situation to the last few weekends………..a High mainly over France at 1032 millibars will move North and cover South West England on Saturday in the 1032 millibar range, but with warm fronts extending over much of the UK in 1028 millibars. The Low’s will be above the High one East in the Norwegian Sea continuing in it’s Easterly track, as it impacts into the Norwegian Cost in the 992 millibar range. The second will be above us in the Denmark Straight (between Greenland and Iceland) in the 1000 millibar range. The third and final one will be 992 millibars heading from Nova Scotia in our direction. Sunday will see High in the 1028 millibar range over Southern England, Southern Ireland and much of France, pushing the Low’s further North still. The Low over the Denmark straight on Saturday will have moved East into the Norwegian Sea and the Nova Scotian Low will have moved to just West off the Icelandic Coast at 988 millibars, and another Low of 980 millibars around Baffin Island in Canada will start to appear. All this will mean predominantly Westerly winds of one variation or another and big swell for Scotland and dieing swell in the South and not a lot happening East, but do read your individual areas to make the most of what there is and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Our call would be some hunting around Northern Scotland, failing that maybe the South West on Saturday. Otherwise there is not a lot to mention really, but do stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed bag, the usual easy beaches for you in the South West and Wales will be a bit lumpy on Saturday and possibly challenging. By Sunday things will have dropped to be more manageable for you guys. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may 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.
