Example Forecast 24/11/12 – 25/11/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right a complex pressure picture, just got more complex, so hang on tight as we launch into the detail…… A Low of 972 millibars over North West Iceland on Friday / early Saturday, will circle around Iceland on Saturday day. Meanwhile to the South there will be an Azorean High of 1024 millibars, whilst between the Azores and North Western Spain a Low of 994 millibars will squeeze up and into the Bay of Biscay and off the Coast of the South West by Midday on Saturday. Sunday will see the Biscay Low having moved into the South West, the Icelandic Low will still be in situ at 994 millibars. The Azorean High will have fattened to 1028 millibars and still be over the isles, but the exciting(!) bit is a fat Low that will have spawned from the Icelandic system over night on Saturday into Sunday. This Low will drop down from Iceland and into the Mid-Atlantic being off the West Coat of Ireland on Sunday. As Sunday continues the Low will get nearer to land being in the 996 millibar range, and then drop down into Northern Biscay, being off the Coast of the South West fattening over the period and into Monday to be about 1000 millibars. This will all mean that there is surf both in the far North and far South West but some major hunting will be needed to make the most of what there is.

OVERALL

A bit of a mixed bag really, Northern Scotland looks fun, or worth some hunting at least. The East Coast spots will be flat overall, the South Coast will have a bit at exposed spots, more the further West you go. The South West and Wales will have surf but with very changeable / variable winds, it will be a bit of a mixed bag and using your knowledge to get the most of what there is will be key – good hunting!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well there’ll be swell in South West and Wales, mind the winds and getting your board in the head! ;0) Practice, practice, practice.

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.
