Example Forecast 28/02/15 – 01/03/15 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As Saturday dawns, we will see four Low pressures one in the Norwegian Sea at 969 millibars, wit the other three in the Atlantic, one South West of Iceland at 964 millibars, another popping out of the Labrador Sea at 990 millibars into the North Atlantic, with the fourth and final one coming out of North America at 987 millibars into the Western Atlantic. These Low pressures will move East and by Midday the picture will be somewhat different, as Low s combine and move around. So by Midday the main Low will be just West of Ireland, with two other Low’s stacked behind in the 980 millibar range coming out of Greenland. In the Northern Atlantic / Norwegian Sea will be a double centred Low ranging between 965 millibars and 972 millibars. The High will be in the Mid-Atlantic at 1036 millibars around the Azores, with other High pressures of about 1021 millibars in South Eastern Europe. Sunday will see the Low to the West of Ireland having crossed the Mainland UK and now be in the North Sea at 980 millibars (still moving Eastwards), the double centred Low North of Scotland will have moved North, still double cetred at 965 and 967 millibars respectively, bang smack in the middle of the Norwegian Sea. Meanwhile the Low’s coming out of Greenland, will have been kept in the North Atlantic due to the Azorean High still being in place at 1032 millibars, stretching all the way into the Mediteranean, with three other High pressures contributing to their position and movement. One fat High of 1036 millibars will come out of North America, with another in Greenland at 1004 millibars, and a third in Western Russia at 1024 millibars. So the Low pressures from around Greenland will stay in the North Atlantic and be pushed by the North American and Greenland High pressures. All this will mean swell for Scotland, the South West and the South Coast, but read the details to get the best of what there is……

OVERALL

Swell for most places, but do read the details to get the best of what there is, as winds will be the killer for most places. Good hunting wherever you go…………

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.
