Example Forecast 29/03/14 – 30/03/14 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

This coming weekend will be the tale of the two pressure systems, with big contrasts of Lows and Highs. A band of Low pressure will be dropping down out of Greenland into the Mid-Atlantic, this system will be double centred all in / around the 1000 millibar range. Meanwhile to our East coming primarily out of Russia and stretching all the way into the Norwegian Sea will be a High pressure of between 1030 millibars to 1024 millibars. Sunday will see the Atlantic Low Pressures, form into one entity, and start to move towards the UK, so will be more in the Near Atlantic at 992 millibars. The High Pressures meanwhile will be in the Northern Norwegian Sea at 1024 millibars, whilst the Russian High will move down into the Black Sea at 1028 millibars. All this will mean that what swell there is will be generally limited to Scotland and the South West Coast. Make sure you read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks to be the biggest and perhaps best of the bunch, the South West will be clean though, but small. Make sure you read the detail and stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Fun / ideal sized for you in the South West, good hunting. But do 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.
