Example Forecast 08/12/12 – 09/12/12 – Friday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big fat High of 1028 millibars will sit over much of the South Western UK and Ireland on Saturday, with a Low of 996 millibars to our North, off North East Iceland. Meanwhile in the Northern Mid-Atlantic a Low encompassing a large area of 988 millibars will be trying to squeeze in. By Sunday the Low off the North East of Iceland will be sucked down into the North Sea in the 1008 millibar range, as the High pressure system will have dropped into Biscay and mainland Europe at 1030 millibars. The Mid-Atlantic Low will still be in the Mid-Atlantic, but it will be splitting-up into two Low’s one at 996 millibars that will be moving North towards Greenland, with the other at 992 millibars remaining in the Mid-Atlantic before it moves in our direction (Eastwards) on Monday. Meanwhile the North Sea Low now at about 1000 millibars will move down the Coast So overall the East Coast is the best hope of the bunch………read your specific area to get the best of what is out there………

OVERALL

The East Coast and the Scottish East Coast at times would be our call. The rest will be mediocre at best……….search and you may find! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small and not challenging (and lumpy) in the South West and Wales. The East Coast looks fun, well worth a bit of hunting in Norfolk and Yorkshire.

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.
