Example Forecast 20/10/12 – 21/10/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Russian High of 1028 millibars will stretch across Central and Mainland Europe (all the way to France), whilst another minor High of 1020 millibars will sit over Iceland all on Saturday. Meanwhile a big area of Low pressure of 984 millibars will be in the Mid to Near Atlantic pushing swell in our direction. Clearly the High pressures to the East of us will produce favourable (offshore) winds for Western Coasts. Sunday looks to be a mirror image of Saturday with the Low only fattening slightly to 988 millibars, but dropping a bit in it’s location to be just East of the Azores. However this will not effect the quality of the waves which will in fact probably increase in size, as the Low punches through the effect of the High pressure and reaches us with a bit more intensity. Make sure you read you relevant areas and stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

It looks like most of the action will be on Sunday, and mainly in the South West (and Wales), although Northern Scotland will also get some. Read your specific areas, and stay tuned for further updates, as may well change as the week goes on…………

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.
