Example Forecast 08/03/14 – 09/03/14 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Several High pressures over Europe, North Africa and in the far Western Atlantic will be the dominant pressure systems over the period. Meanwhile two Low’s around Greenland, with one dropping down and into the North West UK. With a Low of 976 millibars being the first being just off the North West Coast of Ireland, with the other off the Eastern Greenland Coast at 988 millibars. Sunday will see Saturday’s Low having moved East dragging with it Greenland’s Low into the Norwegian Sea. A new area of low pressure will come out of North America at 976 millibars, this deep Low will in turn have pushed the Western Atlantic High East (like Saturday’s Low pressures), and the High will now be over Southern England at 1024 millibars. All this will mean swell in various spots, make sure you read the detail, to get the best of what there is. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Basically all Scottish Coasts will have clean swell at times, forget the East Coast South of Scotland. The South West (and perhaps Wales) is definitely worth a gander though. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Ideal sized for you in Wales, the South West may be a bit more challenging though, 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.
