Example Forecast 07/08/10 – 08/08/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A weak Low of 1005 millibars will be off the Western Scottish Coasts on Friday, before moving Eastwards and crossing mainland Scotland and into the North Sea on Saturday morning. This will be followed by two more weak / fat Low pressures in about the same pressure range on Sunday, which will come from the Northern Mid-Atlantic and Iceland respectively. Due to their location and movement (albeit slow) Eastwards, they will mainly have a slight impact on Scotland and Eire throughout. England (and Wales) meanwhile, will be influenced by a Mid-Atlantic High of 1024 millibars, which will move up from the South West from off the North West Spanish Coast – so what swell there is will deteriorate as the period goes on. Plus for Western England (and Wales) winds will be predominantly onshore due to the Northern track of those weak Low pressures.

OVERALL

Well it ain’t great, your best hope of anything really is deepest darkest Kernow, and even then it will be weak.

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.
