Example Forecast 16/11/13 – 17/11/13 – Tuesday early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Another weekend where the Low’s will be around in the Northern Atlantic originating out of North America, passing by Southern Greenland on an Easterly tract throughout the period, enroute to Scandinavia. So on Saturday there will be a Low of 980 millibars in the Norwegian Sea, just off the Norwegian Coast. Another Low of 996 millibars will be around Iceland, with the main High pressure being 1030 millibars stretching from the Azores all the way into the Bay of Biscay and into South Western England. Sunday will then see the Icelandic Low still at 996 move East into the Norwegian Sea, this movement will in turn shrink the Azorean base Low somewhat, squashing it slightly to 1028 millibars. All this will mean significant swell for Northern Scotland in particular, make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is and stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

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.
