Example Forecast 12/10/13 – 13/10/13 – Saturday Late, Late Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The theory to today is better late than never! So with that in mind……..a big High of 1037 millibars will be sitting over Northern Eastern Scotland and Scandinavia on Saturday, with the Low’s to the West of us around Greenland at 993 millibars, with another in the Mid-Atlantic at 1003 millibars. But the presence / influence of the fat High will mean that the Low’s will never really get in over the weekend. Sunday will see a European land-based Low move up into the Southern North Sea (around Norfolk) at about 1004 millibars, which will hit the East Coast on Sunday. This Low’s movement will in turn pushing the Scottish High up into the Norwegian Sea weakening it as it goes to 1028 millibars. As the High is pushed, up, up and away the Greenland and Mid-Atlantic Low’s will deepen and begin to circle (metaphorically) preparing to come in for next week, but not really for the weekend.

OVERALL

The East Coast is the best option, but knowledge and hunting is your best option, you will need to break open the maps and engage your brain time though, as otherwise it’ll just be lumpy as ‘ell ! Not great elsewhere, small at best……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Ideal learning waves for you in the South West(at swell amplifying spots), the East Coast will be big and lumpy – Joss Bay?!

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.
