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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High pressure of 1039 millibars will sit in the Southern Mid-Atlantic around the Azores, with the Low pressures being to the North in Northern Norway at 973 millibars, with two other Lows around GreenLand, one West of the Denmark Straight at 997 millibars, with another coming out of North Eastern Canada / Greenland into the Labrador Sea at 978 millibars. There will also be a second High pressure over mainland Greenland at 1016 millibars, which will help push and pull some of the Low pressures around. Sunday will see the Low pressures around Greenland come together and move rapidly East to come to sit under Iceland at 954 millibars. This Southern Mid-Atlantic High around the Azores will still be about 1032 millibars, whilst another High of 1043 millibars will come out of North America. So the main dominant pressure over the period, will be the deep Icelandic Low on Sunday, chucking fronts and packed Isobars towards us. All this means there is swell, but to get anything rideable will mean that you will need to read the details, to keep tuned with what is happening……..

OVERALL

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.
