Example Forecast 22/02/14 – 23/02/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 972 millibars over Northern Scotland sandwiched between Iceland on Friday will be pushed North and East as a Low of 976 millibars starts to move in from the Northern Mid-Atlantic for Saturday. Saturday midday will see the Low moving in off the Atlantic towards the Western Scottish Coast, squeezing the previous Low up and to the North East into the Norwegian Sea. The High will be over South Western Spain at 1028 millibars, with another in Eastern Europe at 1016 millibars. These two High pressures will form a united front by Sunday, which will keep all the Low action to the North of us / around Scotland. So in short the High pressures will combine to form one North Eastern European entity at 1024 millibars, whilst another Low will come out of the Greenland Area, so the situation for Sunday will be pretty much the same as per Saturday. With the main Low being off the North Western Scottish Coast at 976 millibars, so make sure you read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is…......

OVERALL

Northern Scotland at times, especially Sunday and Eastern Scotland on Saturday, would be our call. The South West and Wales will all be rideable / fun at times, make sure you read your areas to get a good idea of what is going on, and good hunting…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

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.
