Example Forecast 25/01/14 – 26/01/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A deep Low of 968 millibars just East of Iceland on Saturday will spew isobars towards the mainland UK, there will also be another Low in the Mid-Atlantic at 984 millibars. The counterbalance will be two High pressures, one High in Western Russia at 1028 millibars. The other High of 1036 millibars will be around the Azores. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic low move East and combine with the Icelandic Low, dropping down sitting just North West of Scotland at 954 millibars. All this will mean that the majority of the swell will be around Scotland and Ireland, due to the location of the Low, but there will be quite a lot of swell that will wrap-around into the South West and Wales. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Surf in places and all around really, read your areas. Sunday in the South West will be very wind dependent, keep your fingers crossed for South Westerlies(as otherwise it’ll be onshore). 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.
