Example Forecast 15/06/13 – 16/06/13 –Friday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

There have been some changes since earlier in the week, so read the detail……a Low of 1000 millibars will have moved in from the Mid-Atlantic and be based over Northern Scotland, in addition to this Low another fat Low of 1004 millibars will move in from the Mid-Atlantic towards the bay of Biscay/South Western England. By Sunday the Scottish Low will have fattened as it has moved East across the North Sea and into Scandinavia, now at 1012 millibars. Meanwhile the Southern Low will be off North Western Galicia having deepened slightly to about 996 millibars. The High over the period will be to the East of UK in Eastern Europe at 1016 millibars more or less throughout the weekend, in the West a High pressure of 1020 to 1024 millibars will sit in the Mid-Atlantic, which will hover more or less in situ, helping to push the Mid-Atlantic low in towards us. All this will mean that the swell will be limited to the South West of the UK predominantly, read your areas to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

A South West and Wales weekend, but hunting will be involved on Saturday at least, Sunday looks to be more manageable. The South Coast will also be worth a look, Scotland and the East Coast look naff. Good hunting………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Too big for you really on Saturday, find shelter, perhaps have a gander at the South Coast or Sheltered Welsh spots which will be more manageable for you. Sunday will be smaller and easier, but still challenging for you in the South West. 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.
