Example Forecast 22/03/14 – 23/03/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High pressure of 1020 millibars on Saturday in the Mid-Atlantic will be the principal pressure system over the period. Meanwhile three Low pressures, one in the Norwegian Sea, North East of Scotland heading into the Norwegian Coast at 972 millibars. Whilst the second Low will be just off the Greenland Coast at 996 millibars moving into the Denmark Strait enroute to Iceland. Finally the third Low will be off the North American Coast, and heading into the Western North Atlantic at 1000 millibars. Sunday will see this third Low moving East into the Mid-Atlantic at 992 millibars, but also splitting with a deeper entity around the tip of Greenland. This movement will in turn push the Mid-Atlantic High pressure towards Portugal / Spain, and it will fatten during the process to 1024 millibars. As the High enters the sphere of influence of Mainland Europe the Iceland / Greenland Low pressures will continue to be pushed North into the Norwegian Sea and Norway. Although a High pressure will be dominant for Western Coasts over the period, Friday’s Low which will be heading towards Norway will have a long tail, pushing some swell in to Western Coasts on Saturday.

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.
