Example Forecast 25/02/12 – 26/02/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Pretty much as suggested earlier in the week, a High over France at 1028 millibars and in Biscay stretching as far as off the Western Portuguese Coast will cover Southern England on Saturday. The Low’s will be above the High, one moving East into Scandinavia and continuing in it’s Easterly track to Russia. The second lot will be above Iceland in the Denmark Straight (between Greenland and Iceland) in the 996 millibar range, with another just West of Iceland, sort of connected together. The third and final one will be 992 millibars heading from Nova Scotia in our direction. Sunday will see a High still in the 1028 millibar range over the English Mainland, Southern Ireland and much of France, although the Low’s will start to push it further South as Monday arrives. The Low’s on Sunday will be as follows, one over Iceland at 1000 millibars moving East into the Norwegian Sea, with another smaller entity again in the Denmark Straight, with Saturday’s Nova Scotian Low having moved to South West of Greenland at about 994 millibars. 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…………..

OVERALL

Our call would be some hunting around Northern Scotland, failing that light onshore bashable slop on Western Coasts is your other option?!

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 – but the swell will be dropping. By Sunday things will have dropped to be more manageable for you guys, but it will still be lumpy. But practice makes perfect and that is what you need……

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.
