Example Forecast 08/09/12 – 09/09/12 – Thursday PM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right, things have changed somewhat since Tuesday, so hold on tight, the High of 1024 millibars over most of the UK on Friday will weaken to 1020 millibars come Saturday, as a Mid-Atlantic Low of about 100 millibars comes into our vague sphere of influence. This new Low will combine with the Icelandic Low (again of the same pressure, give or take) on Saturday. By Sunday the High will have been pushed into mainland Europe as the Low’s deepen, and the Mid-Atlantic Low moves North East to cover North Western Ireland and Northern Scotland. This is a simplified synopsis of what is going on, there is more, but this is all you really need to know. The result of all this will be little or no surf in the East or South / South West of the UK with all the swell being concentrated around Northern Scotland….. Make sure you read your individual area to make the most of what there is…..

OVERALL

Northern Scotland is by far the best over the period with overhead waves on Saturday, hunt and find spots that can handle the winds and you should get some fun rides. Every other Coast looks like degrees of flatness overall, a minor cross-onshore ripple for the South West later on Sunday.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Flat in the South West and Wales on Saturday, then some nice sized waves for you by Sunday afternoon.

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.
