Example Forecast 18/09/10 – 19/09/10 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Two Low’s one small one off the West Coast of Scotland at 1000 millibars, and then another occluding / filling in Scandinavia at 996 millibars will produce swell for Scotland and the East Coast on Saturday. By Sunday the West Coast Low will have hit the Scottish mainland and be overhead at 1008millibars, whilst the Scandinavian Low will have been pushed further Eastwards towards Russia - consequently the swell action in the North Sea will lesson by Sunday. Meanwhile dooown saarf, the weather will be dominated by a High pressure of 1020 millibars which will also move slowly Easterly over the period, but remain in situ overall.

OVERALL

Naff overall down in the South West and all Western Coasts. Scotland and the East Coast would be our call, both looking good for all of Saturday, before the swell drops there too.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small in the West, when was the last time you went East? – time to break out the maps and learn some new spots?! Either that or head to swell amplifying spots on the West Coast and benefit from empty, albeit mushy surf.

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.
