PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

This A Low over Ireland at 979 millibars on Friday and another over Biscay at 986 millibars will rapidly fill as a new Greenland Low of 980 millibars moves down into Ireland by Saturday midday. The High pressures will be over North Western Scandinavia at 1028 millibars and in the Mid-Atlantic at 1008 millibars for the same period. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic High pressure squeezed down into the Azores, by more Low pressures coming out of North America, and into the Mid-Atlantic, the Irish Low will still remain in situ. The Scandinavian High will however remain in it’s position, fattening if anything over the period to 1032 millibars. All this will mean a bit of a mixed bag, but there will be waves and some Coasts will be good, read the detail 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.
