Example Forecast 06/09/14 – 07/09/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A weak fat Low of 1006 millibars will sit just North West of Galicia on Saturday, with the main High pressure of 1024 millibars sitting North West of Scotland, stretching up to Iceland. Whilst another fat weak Low will be filling rapidly and dissipating in the North Sea, off the Eastern Scottish Coast, with a second dropping dwon into Northern Germany at 1011 millibars. Sunday will see the Low off Galicia widen in area and fatten to 1009 millibars, whilst the High off North Western Scotland will rotate slightly in towards the Highlands, whilst also touching Ireland at 1024 millibars. The fat Low of the Eastern Scottish Low will have dropped down into the North Sea more bizarrely deepening somewhat, but still being aft at 1008 millibars. All this will mean that there will be no major action to write home about, what swell there will be, will be predominantly generated by onshore winds. Make sure you read the detail to get the most of what there is, and enjoy the warm weather, and don’t get too picky – be happy with your lot!

OVERALL

Nothing to mention getting in due to the High pressure over the North of us, which will keep the fat Low from giving us the limited swell it has. Read your areas to get the best of what there is……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small swell only, spots in deepest darkest Cornwall are your best hope. Or head up the East Coast for more action.

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.
