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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low of 990 millibars over the Western Mediterranean, with two other Lows in the Northern Atlantic. One will be off the Eastern Greenland Coast at 980 millibars heading towards the Denmark Straight, with the other coming out of North America at 993 millibars. Two major High pressures, one around Western Russia at 1037 millibars, and the other around the Azores at 1020 millibars. Sunday will see the two High pressures stretch across the Atlantic and Baltic respectively forming one big band of High pressure, stretching from Western Russia at 1033 millibars to the Azorean High of 1025 millibars; these will meet over the UK. This band of High pressure will act as a block for the Low pressures around, which will not be able to bust through the band over the period, and will just sit North and South as a consequence. The main Low’s will be in the Northern Atlantic, with the North American one having moved East and North, to be South West of Iceland having deepened to 977 millibars, with the Greenland Low now being North of it in the Denmark Straight at 983 millibars. The Mediterranean Low will have moved East too, more into the Mediterranean at 995 millibars. All this will mean that the majority of the swell will hit Northern Scotland, although the South West will get some on Saturday for a while too. Make sure your read the detail though so as not to miss a thing……

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.
