Example Forecast 03/11/12 – 04/11/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right the situation is pretty much as explained earlier in the week, but there are minor changes / additions. A Low of 976 millibars East of Northern Scotland, with a bigger (deeper) one coming down from Iceland in the 968 millibar range on Friday. By Saturday the Lows will be switching position, the Icelandic Low will start to drop down the West Coast of Scotland, whilst theEastern Low in the North Atlantic will start to rise up the Scandinavian Coast into the Norwegian Sea. By Midday on Saturday the Low will now be moving down the Scottish West Coast into Northern Ireland at 980 millibars. Sunday will see the Scandinavian Low now far into the Norwegian Sea and no longer of any influence, whilst the now Irish Low will be in wedged between mainland Ireland and Southern Scotland / Northern England. As the day goes on, this Low pressure system looks to be crossing the Northern half of the mainland UK as it starts to move into the Central North Sea by Monday midday. The counter balance to all this, is a High pressure coming out of Greenland in the 1036 millibars. This pressure system will stretch from Iceland all the way into the Mid-Atlantic at 1020 millibars. By Sunday this big area of High pressure will split, with the fatter half remaining over Iceland, whilst the over half will drop into the Mid-Atlantic at 1024 millibars, where it will come to rest by Midday on Sunday. All this will mean that the main amount of swell will be on the Western Coasts this weekend, with winds also coming from that direction. Do read your areas to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

Wales looks fun at times, more so on Sunday, Northern Scotland on Saturday, and Western Scotland too at times. A bit of South Coast foraging too at times. So a bit of a mixed bag, or average bag, search and you may find something rideable……...

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Onshore and challenging in the South West for you guys, play it safer than being sorry. Wales could be fun?! The South Coast look more manageable for you overall.

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.
