Example Forecast 16/06/12 – 17/06/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A relatively seasonally deep Low of about 996 millibars will off the West Coast of Ireland, pumping swell into the South West of the UK for the early part of the weekend. But this Low will move into the mainland UK on Saturday and sit over us on Saturday, before weakening and splitting on Sunday with it now stretching (as two cold fronts) from the UK to Scandinavia. This cold pressure system will be pushed Eastwards due to two High pressure systems, one of 1024 millibars over the Azores and the other around Canada / Newfoundland (coming out of the Labrador Sea) at 1028 millibars. By Sunday these will form together to produce one big High of 1024 millibars, the exact story of Sunday looks to be getting more complicated. But as it stands, it looks to be a clearly Easterly movement of systems, with the main swell pulse being on Saturday for the South West, and then degrading for Sunday as you would expect with the High coming into play. The winds will be crucial as ever, so make sure you read your respective areas to make the most of what there is, and stay tuned for further updates, as things will probably change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Well the South West (and Wales) is the place to be on Saturday with the early and late birds getting the best of what there is. The South Coast will also have waves, with the swell getting up the Channel as far as Brighton and beyond - a bit of hunting and luck will produce rideable waves……. Scotland will not be great on the face of it, at this stage and the East Coast looks slack too, but stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Wales, the South West and the South Coast will all have waves, beware exposed spots as they will be out of your comfort level on Saturday. Sunday will still be challenging for you, mind the currents and push yourself. 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.
