Example Forecast 01/03/14 – 02/03/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big area of High pressure over the Azores at 1030 millibars on Saturday will be in situ over the whole period, although it will get weaker as the period goes on, due to the Low pressures dropping out of Greenland and squeezing the High pressure system. The Low pressures will meanwhile drop down out of Greenland on a South Easterly track throughout the period. So Saturday will see a Low of 996 millibars off the South West Coast of the Ireland / the UK, with another Low of 984 millibars off the South East Coast of Iceland. With an area of Low pressure stretching like a tail from the South eastern Icelandic Low, this tail will stretch all the way across the Northern Atlantic, with another Low a few hundred miles South of Greenland in the far Western Atlantic at 976 millibars. By Sunday midday the new Greenland Atlantic Low will have moved South and East towards us, and be off the North West Coast of Ireland at 968 millibars, pushing fronts in our direction all the time. With all this Low movement the Azorean High will as explained will be squeezed and like a balloon will burst out to the North East, creating an area of High pressure stretching all the way to North America in the 1028 millibar range. So not looking too bad for various Coasts at several times, but make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland throughout, and the South West (Devon and Cornwall in particular) on Saturday will all be clean. The rest will be variable / ok at times, read the detail to get the best of what there is, some hunting may be needed…….

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.
