Example Forecast 23/10/10 – 24/10/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed somewhat, and it is complicated so make sure you read things, as there have been changes since earlier in the week. Ok the score goes like this, a Low of 995 millibars will hit the North West Coast of Scotland late on Friday before moving in-land and crossing Northern England to hang-out around Newcastle on Saturday and deepen to 994 millibars. This will produce swell for the East Coast undoubtedly, but the wind scenario is not favourable in general. The likelihood is that there will be offshores on Saturday and little swell getting in, then Northerly winds on Sunday as the Low remains in situ, before moving West into Scandinavia by Monday. Whilst all this is going on in the East, in the West another minor North Atlantic Low (which was following the track of the previous one), will combine and fill with a Mid-Atlantic front of 1016 millibars producing a minor occluded front for a time. So there is swell everywhere, but due to the winds things don’t look great anywhere – a bit of pot-luck is in order for everyone really.

OVERALL

Where’s best? – dunno! Is pot-luck really there is swell West and East but the winds will make it unfavourable generally. We would advise hunting on the East Coast, make sure your keen enough, as is starting to get chilly! West Coasters, time to practice your onshore mush burger airs!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Either onshore waves in the West or clean and more mangeable for you East. Explore, and practice, practice, don’t stop learning ever!

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.
