Example Forecast 22/12/12 – 23/12/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of about 988 millibars in the near Atlantic West of Ireland will move rapidly East into Ireland and the mainland UK as it continues into North Western Europe. As it moves along it’s European track, it will also suck in and down another Greenland Low (again of about 988 millibars) into it’s place of the Mid-Atlantic. By Sunday this second Low will have deepened to 972 millibars and be in the near Atlantic North of Ireland and just off the Western Scottish Coasts. The counter balance to all these Low’s will see the High pressures in Russia and Southern Spain in the 1028 millibar range. Read your specific areas and stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on, as things may well change…………

OVERALL

Quite a few spots will be working this weekend, Northern Scotland and some Scottish East Coast spots, as well as most of Western Scotland. The South West, Wales and the South Coast will all have swell, as will the East Coast. The best option is to read your individual areas to make the most of what there is, and to get the shelter that you may need depending on which Coast you are headed to / on. Stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another weekend that will be too big for you in the South West and Wales, head for sheltered spots to play safe. Remember if it looks too big for you, make sure you play in the shallows. The East Coast will also be big throughout – the more manageable of the areas will be the South Coast and Norfolk. Read your individual areas and 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.
