Example Forecast 25/04/15 – 26/04/15 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The end of the week will see a series of Low pressures moving into our area of influence, with a Low of 997 millibars in the Norwegian Sea, with a fatter version in the Bay of Biscay at 1011 millibars, with a third deeper (relatively speaking) Low of 995 millibarsin the Mid-Atlantic, with the final Low around Southern Greenland at 1027 millibars. Saturday midday will see all of these entities move Eastwards, so the picture will now be a filling Low of 994 millibars around Scandinavia, with another of 999 millibars in the Near Atlantic just West of Northern Spain, with the third final entity just South East of Greenland in the North Atlantic at 1021 millibars. Sunday will see a the Low in the Near Atlantic have crossed the Bay of Biscay and moved into Mainland France at 1003 millibars. Saturday’s Low around Scandinavia, will have done a 180 degree manouevre deepening to 984 millibars as it now moves up the Norwegian Coastline on Sunday. Meanwhile the Low around South Eastern Greenland will have moved slightly Eastwards fattening to 1019 millibars, whilst a High in the Northern Mid-Atlantic comes into play at 1026 millibars. All this will mean swell, but it won’t really be great anywhere (maybe the North East on Sunday), so if you see it ride it……

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.
