Example Forecast 10/03/12 – 11/03/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1036 millibars over Central Europe (mainly France) will play a staring role over the period. It will edge up from France into South Western England and Ireland on Saturday, by Sunday it will cover all of the UK and Ireland. The Low action will be based around Greenland and Iceland, in a narrow corridor stretching from Greenland to Iceland on Saturday at about 988 millibars. There will be another two Low’s of 972 millibars (heading into the Northern Norwegian Sea and into the Greenland Sea around Svalbard) and the other one about 984 millibars in the Central Norwegian Sea heading towards mainland Northern Norway. By Sunday all the Low’s will have moved East, and the only one left will be the Greenland one still in the high 980 plus millibar range. Which by now will have crossed into the Norwegian Sea and be moving up the Northern Norwegian Coastline by midday. A new Low will start to form en-route from Nova Scotia crossing the Labrador Sea and into the Northern North Atlantic at 996 millibars. But the dominant weather pattern of course is the dominant European (and then UK and Ireland) High, with the Low’s around Greenland and Iceland only. As the High crosses over us winds will be variable and as it takes hold the winds will be get lighter for mainland England, Wales and Ireland. So stay on your toes if you’re on the West Coast and South of Hadrian’s wall as you could luck out with very light or even offshore winds at times - hunt and ye may find ! ;0)

OVERALL

Fun in Northern Scotland some hunting as ever to shelter from the winds is the call to get the best of what there is. The East Coast will be flat-ish throughout, the South Coast weak (except in the far South West). The Channel Islands looks fun! ;0) The South West and Wales will be fun too at times, at swell amplifying spots – read your areas to make the most what there is.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun and challenging (but not too much) weekend for you guys – get the fitness levels up! Always look and right before even paddling as there may be some one else who has priority, or who is up and riding.

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.
