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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see two Low pressures off Western Ireland both in the 970 millibar range form one entity and move South and East by Midday Saturday. This new Low will be about 978 millibars South West of Cork, chucking swell to the South West and Wales as a result. To counter this Low, there will be a big fat High pressure of 1037 millibars, with a second weaker High pressure of 1017 millibars in the Mid Atlantic. Behind the weak Mid Atlantic High pressure will be a series of Low pressures, one coming out of North America at 984 millibars, with another couple of Low’s making their way around Greenland – but they will not come into play till Sunday. Sunday will see the main Low having dropped down South and East into the bay of Biscay, filling slightly as it goes to 988 millibars. The Russian High pressure will remain more or less in situ at 1038 millibars in Western Russia, with the Weak Mid Atlantic High still around at 1017 millibars. The North American Lows will will be heading East across the Atlantic (but the far West from us) at 1004 millibars, with the second having consolidated somewhat around Southern Greenland at 972 millibars. But neither of these Low pressures will have any effect per se on us over the weekend period, as they are just too far away for the period. All this will mean that there will be swell for the South West and Wales primarily, everywhere else will be second rate, so make sure you read your areas to get the best of what there is……..

OVERALL

Fun in the South West, Wales. The Channel Islands may also have some fun times. Northern Scotland especially on Saturday may be fun too, The Northern East Coast will also have waves, but shelter will be the key to getting something rideable. So if your not in the South West and Wales, you will be getting second best, make sure you read your areas to get the best of what there is……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging for you in the South West, Wales will be more manageable size-wise for you.

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.
