Example Forecast 19/04/14 – 20/04/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a double centred High of 1024 millibars around Norway, with a minor Low of 1012 millibars in the bay of Biscay and mainland Europe, with another High pressure of 1030 millibars in the Mid Atlantic. There will also be a Low of 996 millibars sitting around Greenland / Iceland in the Denmark Straight. Sunday will see the European Low of 1004 millibars take hold over Southern England, this will in part squeeze the Mid Atlantic High (still at 1024 millibars) North, also pushed by a new Low out of North America at 994 millibars. This will mean that the majority of the swell will be on Saturday, as a result of the Low action, but do read your relevant areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland is the best place in the UK with the only place with any proper swell to speak of. Deepest darkest Cornwall will have small ripples.

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.
