PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A deep Low of 976 millibars South East of Iceland will start to descend into the Northern near Atlantic as the week ends, pushing the High of 1032 millibars which will be over the mainland UK on Friday East towards Norway. By Saturday the Low will have split , with one half sticking around Greenland and filling a bit to about 988 millibars, with the other half dropping South of Iceland heading East filling to about 996 millibars. Meanwhile a new fat Low of 1004 millibars will be coming across the Mid Atlantic from North America. Sunday will see this new Low move East towards us ending up around Northern Ireland at about 998 millibars, with the Icelandic and Greenland Lows re-forming into one bigger pressure system which will hover around the area up North. A new High of 1028 millibars over Southern Spain and Portugal will also start to move up for Sunday, being in the lower half of Biscay on Sunday proper. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Northern Scotland, going off throughout! The secondary option would be the South West, Wales and the Channel Islands, which will also have swell (although lumpier) over the period, the best day will be Sunday. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A South West weekend, but it may well be challenging for you guys (size-wise), perhaps the best options would be Wales and North Devon as it will be more manageable for you. 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.
