Example Forecast 28/08/13 – 29/08/13 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 960 millibars will be North of Scotland by midday on Saturday, with another Low to 992 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic heading East towards the UK. The High pressures will come in the form of one around the Azores at 1028 millibars West of Portugal, with other weaker High’s in North Africa. Sunday will see everything that is to the West of us on Saturday have moved East towards us, so the Low will now be 968 millibars just West of Scotland, whilst Saturday’s Low will have moved North and East too filling to 976 millibars now off the North West Norwegian Coast. The Mid-Atlantic High will now be over Spain and Portugal at 1028 millibars. This will all mean that there is surf, but a bit lumpy at best. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

A bit of a mixed bag, not a lot to be majorly excited about at this stage. But there will be surf for Westerly facing spots, read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is. Stay tuned for further updates, as hopefully things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging for you guys on Saturday in the South West and Wales, then smaller and more manageable for you on Sunday. But lumpy throughout overall, so good to practice that’s about all that can be said at this stage. 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.
