Example Forecast 23/03/13 – 24/03/13 – Friday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 982 to 984 millibars on Saturday will sit off the South West of Ireland in the Near Atlantic, but due to the fresh Easterly winds the swell will not fully get in. Sunday will see the winds build to be stronger, pushing the swell smaller. The Low will remain, more or less in situ, but fatten to about 1000 millibars, this is all due primarily to a big area of High pressure around Greenland on Saturday at 1048 millibars, which will reach down into the Northern North Sea and another High in the Eastern Mediterranean at 1016 millibars on Saturday too. Sunday will see the Highs, move into the Black Sea, and fill in the Norwegian Sea respectively. Read your individual areas……..

OVERALL

Well Scotland has swell, the only question is where to head, all depends where you are based and your knowledge factor really – good luck! The East Coast will have swell, but also roaring onshores, if you know somewhere that can handle the winds, head there, simple as that. The South West (and Wales) will be fun, spots that get a bit of shelter from the winds will be best – good hunting……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The South West and Wales will be challenging throughout, head to sheltered spots and mind the winds and your heads! ;0) The East Coast will just be an onshore mess overall, head West, but mind the snow and the winds!

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.
