Example Forecast 12/05/12 – 13/05/12 – Wednesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1036 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday will stretch all the way to the Western Coasts of the UK. Meanwhile a Low will be developing off Greenland at 1008 millibars, and will rapidly move down over Iceland towards Scotland as Sunday approaches. By Sunday midday the Low will have deepened to 985 millibars and will have moved in towards Northern Scotland and Ireland. This movement will split Saturday’s Warm front in two, pushing the Mid-Atlantic High back in to the Atlantic with the other High being pushed into North Eastern Europe. Despite all this, the only real action over the period is in Scotland, everywhere else will be small to flat, due to the High pressures, and a lack of any swell out there over the period. But, 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.
