Example Forecast 14/12/13 – 15/12/13 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 992 millibars in the Near Mid-Atlantic will move rapidly North East being off the Irish West Coast on Saturday dawn, before continuing on it’s track and being off the North West Scottish Coast by Midday, deepening it as it goes to about 968 millibars. The High pressures will be over South West France and off the North African Coast both at about 1028 millibars, forming a line that will push the Low up and away from Southern England. Sunday will see a new Low again about 964 millibars move from the Mid to Near Atlantic quickly moving up off the North West Coast of Ireland and heading (like Saturday’s Low) in the direction of North West Scotland. All this will mean shed loads of swell for Ireland and Northern Scotland, with residual swell also hitting South Western England and Wales. Make sure you read your individual areas, and stay tuned for further updates (tomorrow), as things may change…………

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.
