Example Forecast 02/06/12 – 03/06/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right well the situation is complex and changing, but the two constants over the period will be a Northern Mid-Atlantic Low in the 996 millibar range that will spin around South of Greenland and West of us, and another Low of about the same pressure will be over mainland Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea. The High will be based around central Greenland and Iceland respectively, in the 1028 millibar range which will stretch down from that area to cover much of the UK on Saturday. But as the two afore mentioned Low’s continue to rotate in their respective areas of influence they will squeeze this High out a bit, especially as the Mid-Atlantic Low will splinter fronts off in our direction late on Saturday and into Sunday. Thus creating mini-fronts that will cross south Western England on Sunday and then move into France. So with all these changes (compared to earlier in the week), make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

Difficult one to call really, our call would be the Aberdeenshire overall, otherwise the deepest darkest South West (Kernow) on Saturday, while it’s offshore. Read your individual areas to make the most of what there is, and wind dodge where needed – good hunting…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Both the East and the West Coasts will have waves to some degree. The South West will be cleaner over the weekend (on Saturday), but the East Coast will build into next week. Make your choice and hunt a bit…….

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.
