Example Forecast 18/08/12 – 19/08/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 994 millibars will be just off the West Coast of Ireland on Saturday, with another weaker Low of 1004 millibars around Shetland. These two Low’s will combine, to form a new system at 1000 millibars as Sunday arrives. The High pressures will also be in two areas, with one of 1024 millibars over Eastern Europe, and another weaker High over the Azores at 1016 millibars. By Sunday the Azorean High will start to move in to South Western England, whilst the Eastern European High will also have moved in too. The result of these movements will be a warm front over much of the UK at 1016 millibars. As a result of all this we will see the winds start off South Westerly in direction predominantly on Saturday, before the warm front takes hold and the winds switch to being more South Easterly. So read your areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

Not a lot for Scotland (except a few ripples on the East Coast), all the action will all be in the South West and Wales. Shoulder to head high (at swell amplifying spots) in the South West, Wales will be a tad smaller. Sunday will see the swell drop, but it will still be fun at times in the South West. Some hunting will be needed to make the most of what there is – enjoy……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging for you guys on Saturday in the South West and Wales, then smaller and more manageable for you on Sunday – enjoy.

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.
