Example Forecast 18/05/13 – 19/05/13 – Friday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right, a bit of a different situation this weekend, with Low’s based over Central and Eastern Europe will be land based and rotating anti-clockwise, over the land predominantly. This will mean that swell will be negligible till the Lows actually get over water and are able to agitate things enough to produce some swell. The detail is as follows……..two Low’s, the first over France and Spain at 1000 millibars and the other over Eastern Europe at 996 millibars, will be rotating in an anti-clocjwise manner. The High pressures will be over the Azores at 1028 millibars, stretching all the way up to Iceland and into the Norwegian Sea at 1020 millibars on Saturday. Sunday will see the originally Eastern European Low now having rotated, and sitting off Southern Ireland, West of the South West of the UK at 1008 millibars, with the Spanish/French Low now in Europe at 1004 millibars. The High pressure will have split into two, and fattened in the process. The Northern High will be wedged safely in the Norwegian Sea at 1028 millibars, and the Azorean High will now be 1032 millibars. This will all mean, small swell in the South West and a bit more in the North, read your areas to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

West facing spots in Northern Scotland look ok at times, perhaps being best on Sunday. Some light action for the East Coast on Saturday, but the rest will be small overall. Hunt and you may find……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

It will be a small one, so your best is swell amplifying Westerly spots on Sunday. Have fun and practice, practice, practice……..

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.
