Example Forecast 04/05/13 – 05/05/13 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

An area of High pressure of 1024 millibars over Southern England will be squeezed by a series of cold fronts associated with Low pressures coming out of Greenland over the period. Saturday will see an Icelandic Low of 984 millibars throw fronts over the North West of the UK, weakening the High to 1020 millibars and pushing it down into Northern France. Sunday will see the High pressure extend from the Southern Atlantic up through France and into North Eastern Europ in the 1020 millibar range, this area of High pressure will also cover the Southern half of England. The Low’s meanwhile will continue to be vomited out of Greenland and over Iceland in the 996 millibar range, a succession of Low’s will move East from Greenland, over Iceland, passing Northern Scotland and then towards Northern Scandinavia. All this will mean the majority of the swell will be in Scotland, and the South West of the UK will have a few bank holiday ripples, read your specific areas to make the most of what there is…..

OVERALL

The best bet looks to be Northern Scotland throughout, followed by the South West on Saturday. Everywhere else will be ordinarily naff, read your areas and 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.
