PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right, some changes since earlier in the week (as things have developed, and one or two Low pressures have deepened somewhat, so read the detail to make the most of what there is……. A Low of 980 millibars will be over the mainland UK on Friday, before crossing our central belt and moving into the North Sea for Saturday. It will then continue moving East into Scandinavia for Sunday. Behind this Low will be three of four other fat-ish ones in the high 995 to 1000 millibar range. The High pressure scenario will be around Greenland and Iceland at about 1024 millibars, with another High in the Mid-Atlantic of 1028 millibars (behind the three Low’s which will push them in our direction), this High will stretch from the Mid-Atlantic to the Western reaches of Europe (Portugal / North Western Spain). Read your respective areas to make the most of what there is………

OVERALL

The East Coast in it’s entirety looks good / fun on Saturday (more so from Aberdeen up to Fraserburgh, which should stay ok even for Sunday). Most other places will have weak swell with varying degrees of onshore / cross-onshore winds - read your respective areas to make the most of what there is………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The East Coast will have fun clean waves, and there will be some onshore ripples for the West Coast too - so take your pick – clean or lumpy?! - good hunting

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.
