Example Forecast 09/05/15 – 10/05/15 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1028 millibars in the bay of Biscay, whilst the rest of the picture will be one of Low pressures. A weak Low of 1007 millibars will have crossed the Southern UK into the lower North Sea, as it moves Eastwards. Tit should be noted that the whole picture will see an eastward movement, there other Low pressures in the Norwegian Sea in the 1001 to 1003 millibar range will provide swell for Norway, but not for us! Meanwhile in the South Western Atlantic (heading our way) will be two Low pressures, one deep one of 988 millibars with a weak splinter off it of 996 millibars. By Sunday midday the South Western Atlantic Low pressures will have moved North and East with the main / deep Low being 980 millibars just West of Ireland, with the secondary weaker entity, 990 millibars still in the Mid-Atlantic / South West of Ireland. Meanwhile Saturday’s Biscay High pressure will have moved North East too into Mainland Europe at 1027 millibars. All this will mean swell mainly in the South West (and Wales) at times, but do read your details to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

Not a lot in Scotland at all (except last minute on Sunday in the far West), nor much on the East Coast except some onshore ripples, mainly on Saturday. The South Coast on Saturday looks fun, as does the South West on Sunday. Good hunting……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging for you in the South West on Saturday, some Welsh spots may be ok. But the picture is a mixed one, so if you see it don’t get picky, 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.
