Example Forecast 07/06/14 – 08/06/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Well it is a complicated and convoluted story, so hang on tight………a double centred Low of 986 and 987 millibars at midnight on Saturday in the Near Atlantic off the South West Coast of Ireland will deepen as Saturday continues. By midday this area of Low pressure will have filled somewhat to 992 millibars, still of the South Western Irish Coast. The High will be over Eastern Europe at 1020 millibars, but also stretching all the way into the Mediterranean. There will also be a High in the Northern Norwegian Sea, stretching into the Barents Sea again at 1020 millibars, whilst two other areas of about 1000 millibars coming out of North America. Sunday will see the situation remain more or less static / stationary, with the Eastern European High remaining in situ at 1020 millibars. The High off the Norwegian Coast will have firmly moved into the Barents Sea, fattening to 1024 millibars. The main Low effecting us will still be off the South Western Irish Coast, but slightly fatter than Saturday obviously at 996 millibars. The Low coming out of North America will have moved slightly East towards us, but still be in the far Western Atlantic, having fattened slightly to 1004 millibars. Basically in a nutshell the fact that there is a Low in the Near Atlantic sitting just South West of us for a period of time, will mean that the swell will have a chance to build and become solid over the period. So most of the swell will obviously be in the South West and the winds will be favourable due to the European Land-based High pressures. But do read the detail to make the most of what there is……….

OVERALL

Well for a change there is fun clean swell in the South West and Wales, everywhere else will be 3rd rate. Read the detail to make the most of what there is…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging size-wise in the Devon and Cornwall, more manageable in Wales for you guys. Always look before you paddle / go for the wave, the surfer riding has priority, as does the one nearest to the peak, not you! Have fun go hard……..

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.
