Example Forecast 13/04/13 – 14/04/13 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big area of Low pressure in the Mid-Atlantic of 976 millibars on Friday will deepen as it moves in towards us. By Saturday it will have deepened to 956 millibars, being centred off the Irish West Coast by a couple of hundred miles. The High will come out of South Eastern Europe at 1020 millibars and fatten throughout the period as it moves into Central / Eastern Europe for Sunday, filling to 1024 millibars as it does so. This movement and filling of the High pressure will mean that the Low will be pushed North up the Coast off the Scottish Coast, filling a bit as it goes to about 972 millibars. But due to the depth of the Low and it’s movement, there may well see splinters coming out of it. Sunday may see one such minor splinter at 992 millibars down around Ireland. Things have changed slightly as the week has gone on (especially wind-wise), so make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is. All this will mean a significant amount of swell for Western Coasts……….

OVERALL

There is surf for Western Coasts, Northern and Eastern Scotland on Sunday, although a bit of hunting will be needed. The East Coast will be potentially fun on Sunday too, but head to swell amplifying spots to counter-act the strong winds. The South West and Wales throughout, although Saturday looks weak to start with, but building fast as the day goes on; then Sunday will be well overhead, so you’ll just have to adjust for the winds. Good hunting wherever you are……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small to start with on Saturday, but building fast. Sunday will see seriously big surf, which will be too much for you, find shelter and mind 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.
