Example Forecast 26/10/13 – 27/10/13 – Thursday Morning Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see two Low’s of about 976 millibars in the Northern Atlantic, South West of Iceland, and the other will be further West in the Mid-Atlantic. There will also be a couple of Low’s that are filling at 980 millibars in the Norwegian Sea. The High pressures will be over Italy (at 1020 millibars), and another in Eastern Europe at 1024 millibars respectively on Saturday. Sunday will see the main / nearest Atlantic Low move East and coming in to sit between Iceland and Northern Scotland at 980 millibars, the second Atlantic Low of 986 millibars will drop down to be off the Western Irish Coast. The European High pressures will also have moved, with the Eastern High having moved West as will the Italian one, so by midday on Sunday the two Highs will be over the Mediterranean at 1020 millibars. So all this will mean that the swell will come from the West for Western facing Coasts (and Northern Scotland), but also as a result winds will have quite a lot of West in them too. But stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Absolutely huge on Sunday, be careful wherever you are. Northern Scotland looks really good, the South West and Wales will also be fun and challenging at times. Stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Basically way to big for you, head for super protected spots, expect strong currents too. If it is too big or too dangerous / you’re not fit enough, don’t go in. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

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.
