Example Forecast 14/04/12 – 15/04/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Two fat Low’s one to the West of us (off the Irish Coast) at 1008 millibars, and another in the North Sea will provide swell for the West and East Coasts over the period. The Irish Low will be sandwiched between two High pressures, one to the South West around the Azores at 1028 millibars, and the other around Iceland at 1020 plus millibars. As a result the Low will move down the West Coast of Ireland, before dropping down and into the Bay of Biscay, before hitting SW France. The other fat Low in the North Sea too will be pushed South and East down into Northern Europe / Germany as the period continues. By Sunday mid-day the UK will be under the influence of a High pressure in the 1024 millibar range that will strecch from the Azores all the way up to Iceland and the Greenland Sea. A new more powerful and deeper Low out of Nova Scotia at 988 millibars will now be off the East Coast of Greenland and starting to throw fronts in our direction (North Western Scotland in particular) late on Sunday – and the rest of the West Coast as the week starts…..

OVERALL

The East Coast of the UK looks interesting, some hunting will be needed, but there will be some gems to be had for those who hunt. The West Coast looks average or naff at best, although there will be a bit of swell at swell amplifying spots – hunt and you might possibly find…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Norfolk and even Kent looks fun and ideal for you guys size-wise – go and explore. Smaller and less challenging ripples for the West Coast.

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.
