Example Forecast 07/04/12 – 08/04/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A bit of a similar situation to last weekend with a big-ish High of 1028 millibars centred off the West Coast of the UK in the Near Atlantic. This High will stay in situ over the period, and increase in pressure to 1032 millibars, and area covering much of the Mid-Atlanic. As the High is so big and Centred West of us, the other action will come from small Low fronts coming down from Scandinavia into the North Atlantic; as well as one or two fronts coming down from Northern Greenland and across Iceland to hit Northern Scotland. The minor Scandinavian fronts will bring swell too, down into the North Sea on Saturday at least. As the High is too far West to prevent them from getting in both Northern Scotland and the East Coast will benefit from some fun waves. Make sure you read your individual areas for the detail and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The North Coast of Scotland and the East Coast are the best options by far. Everywhere else will be small, so you will be hunting hard if you are on the West Coast. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Head East for cleanliness. 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.
