Example Forecast 25/05/13 – 26/05/13 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed somewhat since earlier in the week, as the Low’s that were going to hit the East Coast at the weekend, have instead come in earlier than previously envisaged. Consequently the scenario is as follows…….a series of Mid-Atlantic Highs around the 1030 millibar range late on Friday will form one bigger entity for Saturday, this High will also have a minor centre over the UK mainland at 1020 millibars. Now the Low action for what it is, will be in Sounthern Europe at 1008 millibars, with the other Low being over Iceland at 1004 millibars. But as a result of the High’s, and the placement of the Icelandic Low there is a chance that there could be a minor cold front dropping down from the Icelandic Low, but it will not be swell loaded or have much of an impact. Sunday will see pretty much the same scenario, so not a lot of action out there overall……..

OVERALL

Pretty naff overall, Norfolk and Northern Scotland are your best bets – 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.
