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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see a Low of 990 millibars off South West Ireland move rapidly North East across the UK over night and into Saturday. Saturday will see Friday’s Low having deepened and moved into the Northern North Sea at 985 millibars, just off the Scandinavian Coast, which it will move into Scandinavia by Midday on Saturday. Meanwhile another deeper Low of 964 millibars will be in the Northern Atlantic, the High pressures to counter all this Low action will be in Southern and Eastern Europe both in the 1020 millibar range. By Sunday these Highs will have formed one entity, still at 1020 millibars, possibly joining with an Azorean High of 1028 millibars; as a new Low off Galicia of 996 millibars moves rapidly up heading towards South Western England. The Northern Atlantic Low will have filled somewhat from 964 millibars to 972 millibars as it near the Coast of North West Scotland. The new Southern Atlantic Low that will be moving in off the Galician Coast towards the UK will have effected the picture somewhat, making winds more South Westerly for South Western (and Welsh) Coasts which is good / better for that region. Make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Absolutely huge on Sunday, be careful wherever you are. Northern Scotland looks really good, and clean throughout. The South West and Wales will also be fun and challenging at times, and with the predominantly South Westerly winds several / many spots will be fun. This weekend will also see the first swell for South Coast. Make sure you read all the relevant areas, good hunting where ever you go…...

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, be sensible = don’t go in.

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.
