Example Forecast 06/06/15 – 07/06/15 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a fat Low of 994 millibars over Northern Scotland heading into the Norwegian Sea, whilst in the Northern Mid-Atlantic there will be a fat High pressure of 1033 millibars, with another fat splinter in the near Atlantic at 1030 millibars. The counter to these High pressures will be a couple of fat Low’s to the North (in the Labrador Sea) at 1006 millibars and the South (in the Southern Mid-Atlantic) at 1014 millibars. Sunday will see the main Atlantic High have moved East, engulfing Saturday’s minor splinter and growing to 1039 millibars to cover the Mid-Atlantic all the way into the Near Atlantic, encompassing all of the UK in the process. To the North of this High will be Saturday’s Low, which will have moved North and East to be over Greenland at 1006 millibars, whilst another Low will have replaced it at 1001 millibars in the Labrador Sea. A new Low will have come out of North America in the far North Western Atlantic at 1010 millibars, whilst Saturday’s Mid-Atlantic Low will have fattened, but still be in situ (South of the High) at 1019 millibars. All this will mean big surf in Scotland throughout, the far South West will also have swell, but only on Saturday, so read the details……….

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.
