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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A North Atlantic High of 1028 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic will move in to cover South Western Ireland on Saturday, there will be a minor Low of 1008 millibars over Iceland. But the main Low pressure system will be in North Western Russia at 980 millibars, this Low will move into the Barents Sea late on Saturday, as it does the systems around us will also move accordingly. So by Sunday the High pressure will be 1020 millibars, but it will have been pushed down into the Bay of Biscay and mainland France / Northern Spain (it will also have a long tail stretching all the way to Greenland with a nother centre off Nova Scotia). Saturday’s Icelandic Low meanwhile will also have dropped down to be around Northern Scotland by Midday on Sunday at about 1002 millibars, with another centre in to the Northern North Sea. So the Low will be fat, around Scotland and also moving in to the North Sea, so the action will be in Scotland and the East Coast. Read your areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

Well it’s definitely an East Coast Weekend everywhere even up in Scotland, although on Saturday the Scottish North Coast may be okay at times if you hunt it out. Every other Coast will be mediocrely naff!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small even 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?

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.
