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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A deep Low of 948 millibars will impact Western Ireland at Midday, while another couple of Low’s will be to the West of Greenland in the Labrador Sea (North of Canada), with a fourth in the Mid-Atlantic at 1012 millibars headed towards Portugal. So basically not a High pressure in sight on Saturday, Sunday will see Saturday’s Low having crossed Ireland, it’s final location is debatable. Some argue it will be in the Northern North Sea off the Scottish East Coast, other’s North in the North Atlantic off the Northern Scottish Coast. We suggest it will probably be a mixture of the two and be off North East Scotland, meanwhile the Mid-Atlantic Low will have moved East and be impacting the Portuguese Low at about 992 millibars. There will be a faint hint of a High pressure just South West of the Azores at 1028 millibars, but clearly this will have little or no impact overall. A very big swell, it will be interesting to see how much swell actually gets in, read the detail and mind how you go………

OVERALL

Saturday - Northern Scotland, the East Coast, Norfolk / Southern East Coast. 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, and be careful……..

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!

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.
