Example Forecast 25/08/12 – 26/08/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 992 millibars will be off the South West Coast of Ireland on Friday, will cross the Irish Sea on Saturday moving into the mainland UK, filling slightly (to 1000 millibars). This Low will continue on it’s Easterly track crossing the UK heading East into the Lower North Sea and finally into Northern Europe. Meanwhile in conjunction with the Low’s mentioned, a High pressure around the Azores at 1020 millibars will move to be off the Portuguese and Western Spanish Coast for Sunday at 1020 millibars. This High will be pushed in part by North American Low Pressures that will form with an Icelandic one to create a Low pressure front in the near Mid-Atlantic on Sunday at about 1000 millibars. As Sunday comes to a close this front will have deepened and move North East to sit off the North West Coast of Ireland come Monday proper. All this fast movement of pressure systems will mean that the winds will generally be unfavourable for most parts, and the swell very much wind swell, so fast to arrive, but equally fast to drop with the change or slackening of the winds. Make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

Perhaps a Northern Scottish ripple on Saturday, and something similar for the East Coast on Sunday. 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.

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.

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.
