Example Forecast 21/12/13 – 22/12/13 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A deep Low of 955 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic on Friday will move North East to sit between Iceland and Scotland at 960 millibars on Saturday midday. The High pressures will be three fold, one at 1036 millibars around South Eastern Europe, another in Central Spain again at 1036 millibars, with the third from South Eastern Portugal at 1032 millibars stretching into the South Western Atlantic. Sunday will see the deep Low around Icleand / Scotland remain in situ, still quite deep at 968 millibars, a new Low will start to come across the Mid-Atlantic at 996 millibars, whilst the European Highs will have become weaker, and be around the Black Sea on Sunday at 1032 millibars, with another around the Azores at the same depth, but it will strecth all the way into mainland Spain. So there will be a barrier of sorts made-up of High pressures, which will keep all the Low action North of Mainland / Central Europe. Make sure you read your individual areas, as there is a lot of swell and wind out there, good hunting............

OVERALL

A big weekend for Scotland and a head high plus one for the South West and Wales, but in all cases shelter will be the key. There will also be swell on the East and South Coasts, read your areas to get the best of what there is............

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Too big for you, make sure you head to sheltered spots that are more manageable for you. The South and East Coasts would be ideal for you......

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.
