Example Forecast 12/01/13 – 13/01/13 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 998 millibars on Friday off the Western Irish Coast will move down (filling as it goes) to be off the South West of the UK at 1004 millibars by Midday on Saturday. Sunday will see a nother Low around Northern Iceland at 1000 millibars, whilst the Low off the South West of the UK will have moved down into the Bay of Biscay at 1008 millibars, before moving into Southern France by the afternoon. These Low’s will operate around two areas of High pressures to the West of us (in the Mid-Atlantic) at 1028 millibars with the other around Scandinavia at 1024 millibars. Sunday will see little change in the High pressures and what they are doing and their placement. So all this will mean clean waves for Northern Scottish Coasts and the South West (and Wales), but getting shelter from the winds will be crucial in those cases. Read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

Clean surf for the South West and Wales on Saturday, followed by smaller surf with stronger cross-offshores for Sunday. Northern Scotland looks fun too on Saturday, the rest you will have to search a bit more. Read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Fun in the South West and Wales, and Northern Scotland, read your relevant areas and always look left and right before you start paddling for the wave! ;0) Also some rideable waves on the South Coast at times. Good hunting……

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.
