Example Forecast 23/06/12 – 24/06/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The Low of 1004 millibars over Northern England and Northern Scotland on Friday will move North East on Saturday across the North Sea and into Scandinavia on Sunday. The High pressure will be a band South of the Azores, across the bay of Biscay and into mainland France at 1024 millibars. Above this High will be a new Low of 1004 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic (which will move East on Sunday), and above this (stretching from Newfoundland to past Greenland and to Iceland) will be another High at 1016 millibars. So as explained, as Sunday dawns most of the Low Systems will have moved East, although the High pressures will remain more or less in situ and at the same pressure depth, give or take. The picture as far as the Low pressures are concerned will be as follows, there will be Mid-Atlantic one which will have split sending spawn of Mid-Atlantic in towards South Western Ireland and the South Western UK at about 1008 millibars (the main Mid-Atlantic Low will be the same depth). Then you will have Saturday’s Northern Scottish Low moving East into Scandinavia, and a possible new Low sneaking down from Northern Greenland into Iceland. All this will mean…… Stay tuned for further updates, as things will probably change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The South West (and Wales) look the best of the bunch overall. But the South Coast will also have waves, with the swell getting up the Channel as far as Brighton - a bit of hunting and luck will produce rideable waves……. 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.
