Example Forecast 30/06/12 – 01/07/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 996 millibars over Northern Scotland will dominate the whole of the UK, with cold fronts stretching the length and breadth of the country. There will also be three other fat Lows in the 1010 millibars over mainland Europe. The High pressures will be situated over the Azores at 1028 millibars and over Northern Canada and Northern and Central Greenland at 1004 millibars. Between these two Highs will be a big area of Low pressure of 996 millibars coming out of North America which will move towards us over the period. So by Sunday the Scottish Low will have moved into the North Sea filling as it goes to 1004 millibars, the North American Low (now 1000 millibars) will have moved West enroute to Scotland, with fronts stretching down across the Atlantic sweeping towards us.

OVERALL

The South West (and Wales) again look the best of the bunch overall, but it ain’t great with strong –ish winds throughout = lumpiness. Wales will be able to handle the winds a bit better, so that would be our call. The East Coast looks small to flat, Scotland will be mediocre overall at best. The South Coast will get swell, but the usual hunting will be needed to make the most of what there is.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Beware big Saturday, head for sheltered spots in the South West and Wales, Sunday will be smaller and more manageable for you.

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.
