Example Forecast 26/01/13 – 27/01/13 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Overnight from Friday into Saturday a Low in the high 980 millibar range will just deepen greatly to be in the 938 millibar range, and it will have moved from the Western Atlantic (from us) and into the near North Atlantic. Compared to earlier in the week, it’s location appears to be quite Northerly and it will continue to be North West of Ireland (west of Scotland) throughout the period, before splitting up into several distinct Low pressures by Monday. The Highs to counter all this Low activity will be over the Azores at 1028 millibars and Eastern Europe at 1024 millibars, as the period goes on and the big Atlantic Low moves North East towards us, these Highs will combine and move into the Northern Mediterranean for early next week. All this movement will mean variable winds, and variable strengths, generally being strong everywhere on Sunday, make sure you read the detail and your neighbouring areas to make the most of what there is…...

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.
