Example Forecast 29/11/14 – 30/11/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low in Biscay on Friday of about 976 millibars, will be a swell provider, but by Saturday it will have filled and dropped down to around Gibraltar / the Mediteranean. Meanwhile coming out of Greenland and North America will be a series of about three Low pressures, ranging from 987, to 990 to 1002 millibars will start to cross the Northern Atlantic heading towards us. But they will be forced to take a North Atlantic track due to a weak High pressure sitting around the Azores at 1020 millibars. It should also be noted that there will be a big fat High pressure in Westyern Russia at 1036 millibars stretching across the Baltic Sea and into the North Sea at 1016 millibars (this will all come into play for Sunday, perhaps!). By Sunday it looks like the Russian High and the Mid Atlantic Azorean High will be combining and meeting over the UK, so potentially two High pressures, one of 1020 (the Azorean one) and the Russian one now 1032 millibars around the Baltic Sea will provide one big band of High pressure stretching all the way across the Mid Atlantic and North eastern Europe. The Low pressures that are around, will be pushed North and South respectively, so the Biscay / Gibraltar Low will have got fatter and moved East into the Mediterranean at about 996 millibars, whilst the North Atlantic Low pressures will be closely packed around (and North of) Iceland ranging from 996, 988 and 984 millibars over Iceland, in the Denmark Strait and the Greenland Sea. This will mean that if you see some swell in the South West (and Wales) ride it fast before it disappears, however the swell around Northern Scotland will be continuous due to the Low pressures being kept in the Northern Atlantic by the high pressure band around the Mid Atlantic. Stay tuned, as things may well change as the week goes on……

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks good throughout, well best perhaps on Saturday. The Scottish East will also be worth a look on Saturday, the South West will be best on Saturday too. Make sure you read you relevant areas to get the best of what there is, but stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Good size-wise for you in the South West and Wales, practice makes perfect. But stay tuned as things may 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.
