Example Forecast 18/07/15 – 19/07/15 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see two dominant Low pressures which will play major roles over the period, one of 988 in the Norwegian Sea off the Northern Coast of Norway, with the other of 996 millibars coming out of North America, but stretching all the way into the Mid Central Atlantic. The High pressure will be in South Central Mid Atlantic, double centred, one centre around the Azores and the other off Spain, both at 1024 millibars. Sunday will see the Norwegian Low having rotated in an anti-clockwise direction to now be off the Icelandic East Coast at 992 millibars. The North American Low will have moved East into the Mid-Atlantic fattening in the process to 1004 millibars. The High pressures will in turn be somewhat squashed by the North American Low with the Spanish High having moved North and East into the Channel and France, weakening in the process to 1020 millibars. Meanwhile the Azorean High will still be at 1024 millibars, but will have grown in area encompassing the whole of the Mid-Atlantic. All this will mean swell mainly in the South West, but read your areas and stay tuned, as things may well change as the week goes on……….

OVERALL

A generally small weekend for most places, the Scottish East Coast is the place to be on Saturday. The next best perhaps is the far South West, but do stay tuned as things may well change as the week goes on……….

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.
