Example Forecast 11/08/12 – 12/08/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A mainland UK High of 1024 millibars will cover all of the UK on Saturday, with a small fat Low pressure front of 1012 millibars West of Ireland in the near Atlantic. By Sunday the Low will have combined with another Greenland Low of 1002 millibars creating a bigger front overall, and deepening the nearer (Irish) Low to 1008 millibars; which will now be covering South Western Ireland and England. The combination of these two Low’s will push the High pressure (that was over us), East into Scandinavia and towards Russia. So this will mean predominantly South Easterly winds everywhere on Saturday, followed by South Westerly winds for the West Coast on Sunday, as the Low’s start to take hold of things. The fatness of the High and the relatively weak Low’s to our West, will mean that the slow movement of the High, will prevent a lot of swell from coming in till the first part of next week. Make sure you read your area (and surrounding areas) to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Not a lot to mention anywhere really - the East Coast will have an onshore ripple on Sunday, Northern Scotland (at swell amplifying spots) both days, although Saturday will be bigger. The South West of England (& Wales) will have a ripple on Saturday, by Sunday it will be smurf surf territory though.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun weekend for you guys, very manageable. The bigger of the two days will be Saturday for you down in the South West and Wales.

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.
