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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The picture this weekend is a complicated one, Saturday will see three dominant Low pressures which will play major roles over the period, one of 994 millibars in the in the Northern North Sea / Southern Norwegian Sea, another in the Northern Norwegian Sea off the Northern Coast of Norway at 997 millibars. The third Low pressure will be in the Mid_Atlantic coming out of North America, and be double centred at 1000 and 1001 millibars respectively. The main High pressure will be just off the North Western French Coast (South West of the UK), at 1021 millibars, with another couple in Greenland at 1023 millibars, and the final one coming out of the Labrador Sea at 1025 millibars. Sunday will see the Low’s in the Norwegian Sea and North Sea combine and turn in an anti-clockwise direction, coming to rest as a Low of 1007 millibars off the Eastern Icelandic Coast. The Mid Atlantic Low will have moved slightly more East, spitting out cold fronts along the way, with it’s centre being 991 millibars. The High pressure off North West France will have moved East, encompassing much of the UK too, as it sits at 1022 in France. There will still a High of 1022 millibars around Greenland, and another off the North American Coast at 1024 millibars. All this will mean a bit of a one day event, read your areas to make the most of what there is……….

OVERALL

A generally small weekend for most places, the Scottish East Coast however is the place to be on Saturday. The next best perhaps is the far South West, but everyone should make the most of Saturday, as it looks to be a bit of a one day wonder weekend……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The South West and Wales will be challenging for you guys on Saturday, Sunday will be a lot smaller, but more manageable for you guys if you can find a few ripples big enough……….

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.
