Example Forecast 08/02/14 – 09/02/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a big Low of 956 millibars hitting South Western Ireland, with three other minor Lows in the 980 millibar range spread out from Greenland, to Iceland and Norway. Another fifth Low will be in the Mid-Atlantic coming out of North America at about 1012 millibars. The only High pressure to speak of will be around the Azores at about 1020 millibars. Sunday will see the Irish Low have moved rapidly across the UK, popping out into the North East Sea around Scotland, Saturday’s three Northern Lows will have gone, to be replaced by a new Greenland Low that will have come out of the Labrador Sea and be off the Coast of Greenland at 976 millibars. The Mid-Atlantic Low will have moved rapidly East to be off the Coast of Portugal / North Western span, having deepened to 980 millibars, there will still be a High in the Southern Atlantic at 1024 millibars, which will help push these pressure systems on their Easterly tract, and due to their depth all movements over the period will be rapid, so read the detail and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Northern Scotland on Saturday, the East Coast at times, but clearly all the action is down in the South West, Wales and the South Coast, read the detail to get the best of what there is. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The most sensible thing to say is don’t go out in the South West, Wales or the South Coast, if you choose to ignore this advice bare in mind that you are very inexperienced and although you might want to kill yourself, please don’t endanger others – so drown quickly! Kent on the other hand and the East Coast will be more suitable! 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.
