Example Forecast 22/12/12 – 23/12/12 – Friday Morning Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 984 millibars in the Near Atlantic, just West of Ireland, with another couple of Low’s - one to the South Atlantic at 984 millibars, with another around Greenland at 988 millibars. As Saturday goes on the two Northern Low’s will combine into one slightly deeper system at 980 millibars, with the lower Southern Atlantic Low still at 984 millibars. The two High pressures will be around Portugal and Western Russia in the 1024 millibar range, acting as counter balances to all the Low action. Sunday will see the Southern Low move up and combine with the Northern Low’s with a new third Low coming from Greenland. This Low system (at about 980 millibars) will impact into North Western Scotland, with the High pressures as Saturday in Western Russia (but fatter now) at 1036 millibars, with the other High now weaker at 1018 millibars in Central Europe.

OVERALL

Quite a few spots will be working this weekend, Northern Scotland and some Scottish East Coast spots, as well as Western Scotland at times. The South West, Wales and the South Coast will all also 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……

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.

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.
