Example Forecast 27/09/14 – 28/09/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1029 millibars in the Southern North Sea extending from over much of Northern and Eastern Europe including the UK. This High will have a twin of about 1020 millibars plus, centred over the Azores, which will stretch from the Mid-Atlantic all the way east to the High in the lower North Sea. So in short there will be a whole band of High pressure on Saturday stretching from Germany, the Azores and into the Mid-Atlantic. The Low to counter this will be off the South Eastern Coast of Greenland, just South West of Iceland at 989 millibars heading Eastwards. It should also be noted that a North American Low of 995 millibars will be off the Canadian Coast, but too far away to have any influence. Sunday will see the North American / Canadian Low start to move into the Mid-Atlantic deepening as it goes to 983 millibars, it’s deepening and movement will have knock-on effect for the rest of the picture. Saturday’s South Eastern Greenland Low will also have deepened to 978 millibars and moved East of Iceland (North of Scotland), and continue to move East into Scandinavia over the period. There will be another Low of 990 millibars just off Iceland, and by midday the Low will be hitting Western Iceland at 997 millibars. So in summary the Low’s tracking past Northern Scotland will be the ones that are generally swell generating, giving swell for Scotland primarily with everywhere else getting the second best. But make sure you read the details of your area and surrounding areas to get the best of what there is………..

OVERALL

Northern Scotland is cooking! Everywhere else is naff! Ok slight exaggeration, but you get the idea……read the details to get the best of what’s out there…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small swell only in the far South West, spots in deepest darkest Cornwall are your best.

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.
