Example Forecast 17/11/12 – 18/11/12 – Friday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A couple of Lows around Iceland at 982 and 980 millibars respectively on Friday with a High ranging from 1031 to 1027 millibars over the Azores will be the situation. By Saturday, the Icelandic Lows will have formed together to form one entity to the North West of Iceland at 982 millibars, the Azorean High will still be in situ at 1028 millibars, whilst a Mid-Atlantic Low of 990 millibars will start to sneak in above the Azorean High, heading East towards us. By Sunday this Mid-Atlantic Low will be off the Western Irish Coast, with the High pressure having stretched from the Azores all the way into Biscay and maybe even the South West of England. So not a lot in the South West all the action is in the North, read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is………

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.
