Example Forecast 27/10/12 – 28/10/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A North Atlantic High of 1032 millibars to the West of Northern Scotland on Friday will be pushed South and West on Saturday by a series of Low Pressures coming out of Russia. The first one to break loose (so to speak) will be a Low of 100 millibars which will move rapidly Eastwards to be over Iceland on Saturday. The High pressure will now be centered over South Western Ireland at 1028 millibars. But there will be an even bigger Low of 977 millibars which will move into the Barents Sea on Sunday, while a new fatter Low of 1002 millibars will bear fruit over Mainland Russia. However, as this is all happening the Icelandic Low of Saturday, looks to sweep down into the North Sea at 994 millibars, whilst a high from Greenland comes down all the way down the West Coast of Ireland and into the bay of Biscay. What this will all mean is that this will predominantly be a North and East Coast weekend. But do stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on, as things may change…………

OVERALL

The East Coast looks the best of the lot, but do read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is. And remember to stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The Small but manageable for you guys in the South West, and Wales. The East Coast will be big and challenging, play safe if you go East. Norfolk will be more manageable over all for you, so perhaps a better option? Read your specific areas, and stay tuned for further updates, as things may 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.
