Example Forecast 30/10/10 – 31/10/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things as predicted, have changed somewhat and there will continue to be some fluidity with all the pressure movement – so make sure you read not only your region, but the neighbouring ones to make the most of things. Right the score is North Western Scotland will see a Low of 970 millibars sandwiched between it and Iceland on Saturday, meanwhile South Western England will see a Low of 988 millibars in the near Atlantic just off the South West Irish Coast. By Sunday The Scottish Low will have tracked Eastwards and be in the North Sea off the Scandinavian Coast, while the Southern one will have moved South East into France / Brittany. Whilst all this is going on in the East a big Russian High of 1025 to 1028 millibars will be strutting it’s stuff, having more of an impact on us for Sunday with changing winds at most places. But as ever with a High of that size at this time of year, the winds and track of the Lows may be slowed, or even speed up (if the High weakens). So do make sure you read your wind predictions in detail and all the variables for your area……..

OVERALL

A mixed weekend overall, Saturday is the day virtually everywhere (except the East Coast, which will be naff – sorry !), hunt and ye shall find. Last thing Saturday afternoon to the dawnie Sunday will be good wind-wise for most places. But as Sunday gathers pace, most places will deteriorate. Read your area to make the most of what there is…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging weekend, both on size and then on wind. But it is all part of the learning curve. Search, use your map, keep an eye on the winds and explore…..there are waves to be had, don’t be picky, take what your given / see. It’s all about logging the water time for you guys, not whether the surf is pristine.

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.
