Example Forecast 24/01/15 – 25/01/15 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Fat High of 1036 millibars, stretching from the Azores, across the Bay of Biscay towards Southern England and Ireland will be dominant weather pattern on Saturday. This fat High will mean that no Low pressures will really get in over the period. The main Low will be just off the Greenland Coast at 971 millibars in the Northern North Sea, with another one filling off North Eastern Greenland Coast in the Greenland Sea at 979 millibars. Sunday will see the main High still stretching from the Azores, into the bay of Biscay and Mid-France, but it will be joined by another High of about 1031 millibars which will have come out of North America and be sitting in the West to Mid-Atlantic too. The Greenland Low meanwhile will have deepened to about 967 millibars, having moved East along the Greenland Coast towards the Denmark Straight, splitting in the process into two entities with the other Low in the Greenland Sea / Norwegian Sea at 966 millibars. All this will mean swell, but with generally unfavourable winds at times, make sure you read your areas to make the most of what’s coming in………

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.
