Example Forecast 05/07/14 – 06/07/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see two areas of Low pressure in the 985 millibar range around Iceland and Northern Scotland combine for Saturday, to form one entity of 987 millibars that will stretch from Iceland all the way down to North Western Scotland. The High pressures will be in the far Western Atlantic at 1031 millibars (North West of the Azores), with a couple of others in the Mediterranean at about 1016 millibars, and a third in Western Russia at 1018 millibars. Sunday will see the single Low entity still North / North West of Scotland at 996 millibars, with the big High still in the Western Atlantic at about 1028 millibars now, with the other High pressures as of before in the Mediterranean and Russia of 1016 millibars and 1019 millibars respectively. However, a couple of new Low pressures will start to rear their heads out of North America and Greenland respectively, but in both cases, neither will really have much effect on the scene as far as we are concerned. So with all this going on, all the swell will be coming in for Western Coasts. Read the detail to get the most of what there is………

OVERALL

The South West and Wales will have waves, but the winds will be light cross-onshore, so only a little lumpy. North West Scotland will be fun / biggest overall. So hunting and being keen is the key to getting something rideable = good hunting……..

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.
