Example Forecast 24/05/14 – 25/05/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 1012 millibars will sit over South West England, the Channel Islands and Brittany. Two High pressures, one in the Norwegian Sea at 1028 millibars, and another around the Azores again at 1028 millibars. Sunday will see the both the High in the Norwegian Sea drop down into Northern Scotland at about 1022 millibars, whilst the Azorean High of 1028 will also move up towards us. The Low will still be in situ, although fattened to 1016 millibars (as it in turn has weakened the Norwegian High). All this will mean swell in Scotland, but with unfavourable winds, and the same in the South West and Wales. But do stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Hmmm, bit of a mixed bag, in so far as not great anywhere, but things can and probably will change, as the High pressures may not be as strong or influential as the weekend nears. So read the detail, but do stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Bashable in Wales and the South West, although the South West may be a bit challenging size-wise. But stay tuned for further updates, as things may well 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.
