Example Forecast 16/11/13 – 17/11/13 – Friday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 976 millibars just East of Iceland on Saturday midday, with another to the North West of Iceland at 989 millibars, will be the dominat Low pressures. The High pressure will be 1035 millibars sat firmly around Southern England, Wales and Ireland and stretching into the near North Atlantic. Sunday will see the Low East of Iceland having moved East into Scandinavia and beyond, the North Western Atlantic Low will move east and be around Iceland, having filled slightly to 1000 millibars. The High pressures will be in the Mid-Atlantic at 1032 millibars , and around the Azores, as well as residual areas of High pressure around Central Europe and Southern England all at 1024 millibars. It should also be noted that the Icelandic Low will spurn a minor Low on Sunday West of Ireland, but it will be fat, brief and of little consequence. All this means a bit of a changeable scene, so hunting and a bit of pot-luck will be key to getting the best of what there is…….

OVERALL

Head high for Northern Scotland, but the problem will be the winds, so you will need to make full use of the tides to get some shelter from the winds throughout. The South West (and Wales) will be fun on Saturday, but swell amplifying spots will be key, so the deeper you are in deepest darkest Kernow the better. Saturday will be a tad lumpy, due to the onshores. Read the detail, and good hunting…….

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.
