Example Forecast 13/10/12 – 14/10/12 – Friday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right things have changed considerably since earlier in the week, so make sure you read the detail…… A fat Low of 1002 millibars over Scotland on Saturday will stretch across the whole of the UK, being up to 1008 millibars South. This system will sit over us for the period, and only move slightly South and East into the Southern North Sea, and mainland Europe on Sunday, but still stretching over us overall. A minor Low will sneak in on Sunday, down into Biscay, but it will not really get in to us, except in the far South West. The counter balance to all this will be an Azorean based High of 1016 millibars on Saturday with a deep Low of 974 millibars West of Greenland in the Labrador Sea. By Sunday the Azorean High will have fattened to 1024 millibars and it will have stretched East towards the UK, whilst the Low West of Greenland will be moving into the North Atlantic having deepened to 960 millibars. But the Greenland Low will have little or no impact on us till the middle of next week, in the meantime read your individual areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

As explained, due to the changes you will need to read in detail your individual areas, but in short………humongous Sunday isn’t happening! Searching around Scotland will produce something, each Coast will have an okay day / moment, but blink and you could miss it. The East Coast of the UK will be naff, although Norfolk may well have a ripple on Sunday. The South Coast won’t really happen, except in the far South West, and the South West will just be onshore, but some Welsh spots will be ok. So some hunting will be key wherever you are……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Hmmm, well there are loads of options, Wales and the South Coast (in the far South West) are your best calls, although Norfolk will have a manageable Sunday wave.

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.
