Example Forecast 18/10/14 – 19/10/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a deep Low of 976 millibars off the Irish West Coast by midday, the High pressures will be over Western Russia at 1028 millibars, with other High pressures in the Mediterranean at 1024 millibars, and over Northern Greenland at 1024 millibars. The forth and final High will be coming out of North America at about 1027 millibars, this final High pressure will be crucial as an entity, as it will be the catalyst for change over the period. Sunday will see Saturday’s Irish Low be shunted up the North East Atlantic off the Irish Coast, coming to be about 980 millibars North / North West of Scotland. It’s movement and speed of motion will have been dictated by the High pressure coming out of North America now 1027 millibars on Saturday, now 1029 millibars on Sunday pushing it up all the time. This High will also have the tail-end of a major storm out of North America (Gonzalo) about 992 millibars pushing the High pressure of 1029 millibars into the Mid-Atlantic, whilst also pushing the Low pressure up, up and away North towards the Norwegian Sea. This will all mean that Sunday will see the rapid movement of the Irish Low into the Norwegian Sea, however this rapid movement will not have to much of a negative effect on the swell. Due to the fact that the Low previously sat in situ for a prolonged period of time, meaning, that yes the swell will decrease but not dramatically.

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.
