Example Forecast 28/08/13 – 29/08/13 – Friday AM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday Midday will see a Low of 972 millibars to the North East of Scotland heading towards Mainland Norway (it will obviously previously gone past Northern Scotland on Friday). Meanwhile in the Mid-Atlantic a new Low of 984 millibars will start to move in east towards the UK, the High pressure will be over the Azores at 1030 millibars. This will mean that, as the new Low moves in for Sunday the High pressure will push it North and East, again on a Scottish track / direction. So Sunday Midday will see the Low West of Scotland, at about 972 millibars, whilst the Azorean High will have moved North and East too, being over Spain at 1028 millibars. All this will mean that there is surf, but what there is will be lumpy at best. Read your areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

A bit of a mixed bag, not a lot to be majorly excited. There will be surf for Westerly facing spots, our call would be Eastern Scotland, but read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is…….

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.
