Example Forecast 18/01/14 – 19/01/14 – Monday PM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

This weekend looks a bit different from the norm, with a Low coming out of Nova Scotia, passing under Greenland overnight on Friday and coming to be off the North West Irish Coast at 978 millibars by midday on Saturday. There will be a minor fat Low over Brittany at 1000 millibars, but the High pressure will be in the Mid-Atlantic at 1032 millibars, acting as the counter balance to the Lows. Sunday will see the Low North West of Ireland drop down to encompass most of Ireland at 980 millibars, sucking in the Brittany Low too. The High pressure will remain in the Mid-Atlantic around the Azores at 1032 millibars, this will all mean that…….. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Another mixed bag, Eastern Scotland on Saturday, Northern Scotland throughout. The South West and Wales will be generally onshore, the South Coast will be clean and offshore in the far South West. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging weekend for you in the South West size-wise, more manageable in Wales. 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.
