Example Forecast 25/08/12 – 26/08/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 992 millibars will be off the South West Coast of Ireland on Friday, Saturday will see this Low move East into Central area of the UK, filling slightly (to 1000 millibars) as it covers the mainland. As Saturday ends, this Low will continue it’s Eastward track (across the North Sea and into Northern Germany / Southern Scandinavia), whilst another weak Low of 1000 millibars West of Iceland starts to move down towards North Western Iceland for Sunday. So as you can see, this weekend will be dominated by Atlantic Low’s moving in from the West, which will be the predominant wind direction for Western Coasts, while Eastern Coasts will have Northerly / North Easterly winds from the other side. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Perhaps a Northern Scottish ripple on Saturday, and something similar for the East Coast. The main action will be in the South West (and Wales), and on the South Coast. Read your relevant areas, as some hunting will be needed to get the best of what there is. Stay tuned for further updates, as hopefully things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Probably too big really for you and very messy on Saturday in the South West (and Wales), Sunday will still be a struggle. The South Coast looks to be more fun and manageable for you overall. 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.
