Example Forecast 15/03/14 – 16/03/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Basically this weekend will be dominated by High pressures with Low pressures coming out of Greenland, passing over Iceland, before heading into Scandinavia. Right the detail is as follows, a High pressure of 1036 millibars will be pushed out from over the Southern UK on Friday into the Bay of Biscay / just South West of Ireland for Saturday. Meanwhile Friday’s Low will have gone into Scandinavia (bringing swell to the North Sea in the process), and Saturday will see a new Low leaving Greenland and crossing Iceland at 996 millibars, on a similar South Easterly track. Now clearly due to the location of the High pressure, there will be now Low (nor swell) of consequence coming in to the South West of the UK, over the period. Right Sunday will see the High remain in situ, weakening ever so slightly to 1030 millibars, while Saturday’s Icelandic Low will have crossed Iceland and headed East into the lower Norwegian Sea / Northern North Sea still at 996 millibars. So as you can see the majority of the action over the period will be around Northern Scotland and the East Coast(but there will also be a few ripples in the South West / Wales). Make sure your read your areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

Northern Scotland and the East Coast both look to be good to cranking and way better than anywhere else. But make sure you read the detail to get the best of what there is…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Ideal sized for you in the South West and Wales, practice, practice, practice. Norfolk and the East Coast will also be fun, or better put, better! But spots North of Norfolk may be a bit too challenging size wise. Do read all the areas to make the most of what there is, good hunting wherever you go…….

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.
