Example Forecast 30/03/13 – 31/03/13 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right things have got clearer as the week has gone on, so hold on tight for the detail………. Basically the first half of the weekend for the Mainland will be dominated (over the land at least) by a burp from a Russian High of 1028 millbars from the Motherland, which will spew a weak High of 1016 millibars over the Mainland UK on Saturday (past a Eastern European Low of 994 millibars). Sunday will see a Greenland High of 1020 millibars, add to already present Mainland UK High of 1016 millibars, more re-enforcing it than adding anything really. The main Low will come out of Eastern Canada at 970 to 974 millibars, and on Saturday the Low will burp (in a similar fashion to the Russian High), tossing us a small fatter pulse of Low pressure nearer towards us at 994 millibar range. Sunday will see the main Low remain in situ off the Eastern Canadian Coast, in the North Western Atlantic still acting as the centre with it’s spawn now having multiplied, so there will be two fat Lows of about 994 millibars in the near Mid-Atlantic to the West of Ireland and off North Western Spain. These Low’s to the West of us will obviously bring swell in our direction, and the High pressure over the mainland, although weak will give us the offshores for the West Coast that we crave. Read your areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Without a doubt it is a clean and head high South West and Wales’s weekend. Everywhere else looks small and not great. 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.
