Example Forecast 27/12/14 – 28/12/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1030 millibars will sit in the Mid-Atlantic, with another High pressure coming out of Eastern Greenland at 1032 millibars, with a third High pressure off the Portuguese Coast at 1034 millibars. The Low pressures will be coming out of Canada at 976 millibars, with another heading towards the Azores at 997 millibars, whilst the third area of Low pressure will be a Low of 994 millibars that will have dropped down from the North Sea into North Eastern Europe, with a couple of other Fat Lows that will be filling over Scandinavia. Sunday will see the High pressure now sitting over the mainland UK at 1035 millibars, this area of High pressure will stretch from Iceland down through the Bay of Biscay and down the Portuguese Coast all the way to North Africa. The Scandinavian Low’s will still be filling in Scandinavia at about 1010 millibars, with another Low in the Mid-Atlantic at 989 millibars, with the only other Low in Mainland South Eastern Europe at 993 millibars. So clearly things have changed somewhat, as the movement of the High pressures will push any Low pressures out of our area of influence. But there will be swell, albeit with some winds at times, so make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

A bit of a mixed one really, read your areas to make the most of things. The South West and Wales look fun on Sunday, while the South Coast will be okay on Saturday. The East Coast will have the biggest swell, but be lumpy due to the winds. So make full use of the tides and shelter wherever you are, and read your areas to get the best of what there is…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Wales and the South West will be manageable for you guys on Sunday, and the South Coast looks a good bet for you on Saturday. Good hunting and remember to play safe as 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.
