Example Forecast 30/08/14 – 31/08/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will be a tale of two halves with the Low pressures versus the High pressures. All the Low action will be coming out of the West predominantly, with a deep Low of 970 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic, followed by a lesser entity of 999 millibars just off the Eastern Greenland Coast, whilst the third fatter one North East of Scotland in the North Sea at 1003 millibars. The counter to all these Low’s will be a fat-ish High pressure of 1023 millibars right in the middle of the Bay of Biscay, with other High pressures in Eastern Europe at 1020 millibars, and then Northern Scandinavia at 1021 millibars. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic Low having moved North and East to sit off the Western Icelandic Coast, having amalgamated Saturday’s Greenland Low, this new-ish entity will be 971 millibars. The Low’s process has of course been helped by the High in the Bay of Biscay, but the dpth of the Low and it’s movement will have weakened the High pressure a little to 1022 millibars, but it will still be in situ. The Low pressure that was off the Scottish Coast in the North Sea will have been pushed into Scandinavia and filled to 1012 millibars. All this movement and the High pressures will mean swell for some of us, but others may get blocked, so make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is……….

OVERALL

Saturday is all about the South West (and Wales), dawn and dusk will as usual be cleanest. Then Sunday on the Scottish North Coast, which is by far the best of the bunch. Have fun and good hunting wherever you’re headed………

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.
