Example Forecast 08/12/12 – 09/12/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1028 millibars will sit over much of the mainland of the UK, with a Low of 996 millibars North East of Iceland. Meanwhile in the Northern Mid-Atlantic a Low of 988 millibars will be trying to squeeze in. Sunday will see the High pressure now fully over us (and France) at 1032 millibars, the Icelandic Low will have continued on it’s track North East crossing the top of the North Sea and up the Scandinavian Coast at 1012 millibars. Meanwhile the Mid-Atlantic Low will have split into two with both centres about 1000 millibars, obne remaining in the Northern Mid-Atlantic with the other heading North Eastwards towards Iceland’s West Coast. All this will mean little or no swell for the South West, Wales and the South Coast, whilst Scotland and the East Coast will have some ripples! ;0) Read your specific areas and stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on, as things may well change…………

OVERALL

The East Coast and the Scottish North Coast at times would be our call. The South West and the channel Islands on Saturday will be clean and waist high(perhaps) before dropping fast. Stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small and not challenging in the South West and Wales, Saturday is the best hope. The East Coast looks fun, well worth a hunt. 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.
