Example Forecast 02/11/13 – 03/11/13 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 996 millibars West of Ireland early on Saturday, this Low will cross into Southern Ireland deepening in the process to 992 millibars in the process. Meanwhile to the North of us around Iceland a Low of about 988 millibars will sit to the East of Iceland in the South Western Norwegian Sea on Saturday. By Sunday the Irish Low will have crossed the mainland UK into the Mid-North Sea, this in turn will will link-up with the Norwegian Low, but the North Sea Low at 984 millibars will move rapidly into South Eastern Scandinavia, whilst the Low East of Iceland also at 984 millibars will hover in situ. In the meantime another Low of 980 millibars South of Greenland in the Mid North Atlantic will start to head in our direction (or better put, towards Northern Ireland / Scotland). But it will not really come into our sphere of influence till Monday. The counter balances to all these Weekend Low pressures will be High pressures in the Mediterranean of 1020 millibars and around the Azores at 1028 millibars. These High pressures will help push the Irish Low pressure on it’s North easterly track over the period, and cause much of the Westerly winds that England will experience. All this means, swell, but with winds, so make sure you read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

One of those weekends where searching is key to getting some rideable fun stuff. The Scottish North Coast, Wales and the South Coast would be our call, make sure you read your relevant areas to get the most of what there is. Oh, and good hunting! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Again too 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.
