Example Forecast 15/11/14 – 16/11/14 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday midday will see a Low of 992 millibars off the South West Coast of Cornwall, with a nother fatter Low of 1000 millibars just South of Iceland, with a fatter third Low of 1012 millibars sitting in the Mid-Atlantic. The High pressures will be a fat one of 1036 millibars over Mainland Western Russia, with a second lesser High of 1020 millibars coming out of North America into the Atlantic. Sunday will see the Atlantic High of 1020 millibars, having spread across much of the Atlantic at 1016 millibars. Meanwhile a new Low will have headed East out of Canada at 988 millibars, with another weaker Low of 996 millibars coming out of Greenland into the Northern Atlantic around Iceland. All this High and Low movement will have pushed the Saturday’s weak Icelandic Low South and East across the Mainland UK, fattening as it goes to 1004 millibars. The Low South West of Cornwall, will also have been pushed South, now into the Bay of Biscay, fattening to 996 millibars in the process. The Russian High will also have moved East into the Motherland more, but the High will still be so big it will encompass much of Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. All this will mean that there will be swell in the South West, Scotland and some swell will also push down into the East Coast. Make sure you read the details and stay tuned, as things may well change as the week goes on……

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.
