Example Forecast 06/11/10 – 07/11/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big fat High of 1040 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic will dominate most of our weather over the period, bringing a warm front to Western areas. There will be a weak Low of 1008 millibars briefly passing through the lower reaches of the North Sea over the period – but it’s weakness, and the High will push it East into Scandinavia and towards Russia, very quickly – thus producing little or no East Coast Swell. By Sunday the only hint of anything (due to the still present fat Mid-Atlantic High), will be a Greenland Low of 984 millibars that will start to track West heading towards North Western Scotland / Ireland for early next week.

OVERALL

Mainland Western Scotland throughout or Wales on Saturday would be our call. Will be generally onshore and messy elsewhere and very small on the East Coast. not a great weekend overall – earn brownie points and stay home and do some cleaning so you can run next time it’s good!?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed weekend, Wales is the best bet for you overall – go and explore a new area if you don’t know it. Mind the nightlife – can be intoxicating! ;0) the South West will be more lumpy and onshore, but don’t be too choosey lumpy onshore waves are better than no waves! Practice is practice – a good weekend to test your fitness and ability to get outback – onshore waves can be fun and bashable – don’t be snobby!

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.
