Example Forecast 06/10/12 – 07/10/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low in the Norwegian Sea of 996 milibars on Friday will throw some swell towards Northern Scotland, this Low will in turn push some swell down the East Coast over the period. For the UK a weak High of 1016 millibars will sit over the mainland and Ireland, but an Azorean Low of 992 millibars will start to move up into the near Atlantic, starting to come into our sphere of influence by Sunday. The main issue will be movement of the weak High as it is pushed into the lower North Sea on Sunday, and whether it’s Easterly winds prevent the Azorean swell that is associated with the Low from getting in. So for the South West swell amplifying spots will be the call, in fact for most places swell amplifying spots are the call.

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks to be fun at times, and the Scottish East Coast late on Saturday afternoon to dusk would be worth a gander too. The East Coast will have smalli-ish, clean-ish waves on Sunday, but the cleanest will be the South West (and Wales), but it’ll be small, overall, with a hint of something late on Sunday. Some hunting will be needed everywhere……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

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.
