Example Forecast 03/01/15 – 04/01/15 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a big area of High pressure off the Portuguese Coast in the near Portuguese Atlantic at 1036 millibars, there will also be a wekaer (but still big) High pressure over Southern England at 1024 millibars by Midday. The Low pressures to counter all this High action will be all Northern based, with a big one over Western Russia at 964 millibars, covering an imense area, stretching into the North Sea. Meanwhile two new Low pressures will swing round Southern Greenland, with the first one of about 1000 millibars heading across the North Atlantic South West of Iceland in the direction of Scotland. It will be followed by a deeper Low of 984 millibars, which will push the first Low pressure along. Sunday will see the Portuguese High now have made land fall, but still be fat-ish at 1032 millibars, encompassing Portugal, Spain and much of the Near Coastal Atlantic. The High over Southern England will have moved East into mainland Europe still at 1024 millibars. The combination of these two areas of High pressure, will mean most of Europe will be bathed in their High pressure, as will the Mid-Southern Atlantic, and much of the UK. Saturday's Northern Greenland Low pressures will not really get through this band of High pressure, and the smaller fatter Low although moving East, it will pass South of Iceland (North of Scotland) as it then starts to move into the North Sea, meanwhile the second deeper Low will have deepened to 968 millibars off the Southern Greenland Coast (West of Iceland). All this will mean that there will be some swell getting in, but the High pressures that are so dominant will complicate thiongs somewhat, so make sure you stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on……….

OVERALL

Eastern Scotland, and the East Coast on Saturday. Followed by the South West and Wales on Sunday – those appear to be the best options, but stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………Eastern Scotland, and the East Coast on Saturday.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Wales is your best overall, then the South West on Sunday, but be careful as it will be too big for you in general, so sheltered spots would be best for you to learn and improve. Stay tuned for further updates, 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.
