Example Forecast 31/05/14 – 01/06/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High pressure of 1024 millibars will sit over the mainland of the UK on Saturday, the area of High pressure will extend all the way to the Azores, where it will be 1032 millibars. The main area of Low pressure will be just off the Greenland Eastern Coast at 1000 millibars, whilst South in the Mid-Atlantic it will also have spawned a minor fat Low of 1010 millibars. Sunday will see the Azorean High pressure push the Low pressures towards us, and the Greenland Low will fatten to 1004 millibars as it moves East towards Iceland. This movement in turn will also move the Mid-Atlantic fat Low North and East to sit just to the West of Northern Scotland and North West of Ireland at 1008 millibars. The movement of the Low pressures will push the High pressure based around the UK into the Southern North Sea at 1020 millibars. As described the weekend will have a High pressure dominating the UK mainland, with another around the Azores, and the only Low pressures will be fat and weak and not really ever getting to us, so you’ll have to read the detail to get the few ripples that may get in……

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.
