Example Forecast 17/03/12 – 18/03/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok things have changed again, so pay attention as it is a bit complicated…….A Low off Northern Scotland at 998 millibars will continue in it’s Easterly direction over the Northern North Sea and into Norway. As it hits the land mass it will move North and combine with another Low of 996 millibars that will have come out from Eastern Iceland and moved across the Norwegian Sea. These two Low’s will combine to form one in the Norwegian Sea over Sunday at 988 millibars and will hover more or less in situ. Meanwhile a High pressure over the Azores at 1030 millibars will throw warm fronts in our direction on Saturday. But Saturday’s Scottish Low will also create a new entity (a small fat Low of 1010 millibars) in part as a result of the Azorean High’s warm fronts; this fat Low will be over South Eastern UK and into Holland from late Saturday and into Sunday. By Sunday a couple of Nova Scotian Low’s and an South Eastern Greenland one (all in about the 1000 millibar range) will start to line-up to the far West of Europe. Their path will obviously be blocked by the Azorean High and the Nova Scotian Low’s will be pushed North and deepen to form one entity with the Greenland Low of about 996 millibars. This Low will be on the edge of the Denmark straight, but it’s fronts will be blocked by the Azorean High which will expand and start to move North into the Bay of Biscay as the week starts.

OVERALL

A bit of a lumpy one in the South West (except for the Saturday dawnie), and Wales. Northern Scotland as ever would be our call, throughout Saturday ! ;0) Search and ye may find……!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The South West is good for you overall and bit challenging at times, especially with the wind on Sunday. Wales will be fun and more manageable overall for you. Practice, practice, practice and all that!

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.
