Example Forecast 11/07/15 – 12/07/15 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a double centred Low pressure of 994 and 1002 millibars respectively in the near North Atlantic South of Iceland and North West of Scotland by midday. The counter to this Low will be several High pressures, one to our East in Europe at 1018 millibars, another in the Mid Atlantic over the Azores at 1028 millibars, with a third in the Labrador Sea at 1024 millibars. There will also be a second fat-ish Low coming out of North America / Nova Scotia at 1007 millibars. So by Sunday the Low South of Iceland will have fattened to 1011 millibars as it moves Eastwards into the Western Atlantic, and the High out of the Labrador Sea will drop down into the North Western Atlantic at 1023 millibars. All this will mean that Saturday’s double Low in the Northern Atlantic will have turned into one entity at 1002 millibars coming to sit over Northern Scotland by Midday. The Azorean High pressure will still be in situ at 1029 millibars in the Mid Atlantic. All this will mean swell mainly in the South West, but read your areas to get the best of what there is……….

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.
