Example Forecast 24/03/12 – 25/03/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right well hold your breath….it looks good! A deep Low in the Mid-Atlantic of 968 millibars will pump swell in our direction, this Low will however move rapidly North West towards Nova Scotia and Greenland due to a Scandinavian High of 1026 millibars which will move West to encompass the whole of the UK over the weekend period. By Saturday midday the High now of 1028 millibars will be over the mainland UK, having pushed the Low (now in the 970 millibar range) into the Northern North Western Atlantic and the Labrador Sea around Greenland and Nova Scotia. The good news is obviously that due to the depth of the Low and the presence and location of the High pressure, winds and swell look favourable over the period. Make sure your read your individual areas for the detail and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Naff in Scotland and the East Coast, not much to mention on the South Coast (due in part to the cross-onshore winds). Wales, the South West and the Channel Islands on the other hand will be cranking – enjoy! Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Surf will be challenging for you this weekend, make sure you look left and right before you even start paddling as there may be a more competent surfer with priority – roughly translated as – don’t get in others way. But clean fun surf, push yourself and you will score a fun ride or too. 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.
