Example Forecast 04/09/10 – 05/09/10 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Three Mid-Atlantic Low’s of between 990 to 1000 millibars will move slowly towards us over Saturday. By Saturday night / Sunday they will have merged to create one Low of 992 millibars North West of Ireland. Meanwhile the East Coast will be under a whole Scandinavian High of 1026 millibars. This will mean that winds will be strong for the East Coast and Scotland on Sunday, whilst the Low pressure system will prevent those winds effecting the West Coast much. Search and ye shall find……..

OVERALL

Scotland both Northern and Western look good then UK Western Coasts are a close second. Saturday looks to be the better of the days everywhere, by Sunday you will need to search out some swell amplifying spots as the swell will drop somewhat.

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.
