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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 1008 millibars over Northern England and Northern Scotland will move North East on Saturday across the North Sea and into Scandinavia on Sunday. There will be a further cold front / Low behind it, and then another Mid-Atlantic Low, which will spawn a smaller Low of 1016 millibars which will be off South Western Ireland on Saturday midday. The High pressure will be a band stretching from South of the Azores, across the bay of Biscay and into mainland France at 1024 millibars. Late on Saturday and into Sunday the three Low’s will have combined to form one front over the UK at 1004 millibars which will move East into the North Sea by midday Sunday. The High pressure systems will still predominantly be South of the Azores in the Atlantic stretching all the way across the bay of Biscay, into France, Central Europe, Germany and into Eastern Europe. So as you can see things have changed somewhat, read your relevant (and surrounding) areas to make the most of what there is…..

OVERALL

Things have changed somewhat, Scotland looks naff overall (the Scottish West Coast might be worth a gander on Saturday), the East Coast doesn’t look much better overall. All the action is in the South West, Wales and the South Coast. Read your relevant (and surrounding) areas to make the most of what there is, a bit of hunting and luck will should produce rideable waves…….

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.
