Example Forecast 21/02/15 – 22/02/15 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see a rapidly moving Low come from the Atlantic in to Southern England before continuing it’s Easterly track into Europe by Saturday. By Midday Saturday, a big High pressure of 1036 millibars will sit in the Mid-Atlantic at 1036 millibars encompassing the Azores, and taking up much of the whole Northern Atlantic. To the North around Greenland and West of Iceland there will be a couple of Lows in the 975 millibar and 983 millibar range. Sunday will see the Mid Atlantic High remain, although it will be squeezed by the afore mentioned Low pressures, as the Low pressures move together to form one deep entity South West of Iceland at 950 millibars by Midday Sunday. This Low pressure movement, will squeeze the high towards North America, and due to the depth of the Low the High will in fact fatten to 104 odd millibars.

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.
