Example Forecast 11/01/14 – 12/01/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1020 millibars over Southern England and North West France to start with, whilst in the Mid Atlantic a Low of 980 millibars, whilst two other Low’s one around North Eastern Iceland at 998 millibars, and another just off the Greenland Coast again at 994 millibars. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic Low having moved North and East combining with the Greenland Low deepening as it goes to 974 millibars. The Southern UK High will have moved East to cover Eastern England and North Eastern Europe at 1024 millibars. This will all mean, good waves at several Coasts depending on the day and time, but bare in mind the banks after all the storm swell we have had recently; make full use of the tides to get the best 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.
