Example Forecast 20/11/10 – 21/11/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Well in short it’s a slack one, but the detail goes as follows……….two fat Low’s in the high range 1000 millibars plus will be filling and moving out of our sphere of influence, one off the North Western Scottish Coast which will fill in situ. Whilst the second will move into Brittany, all pushed by a fat Atlantic High of 1024 millibars coming towards us. By Sunday the High will be off the South West Irish Coast, with the North West Scottish Low still there in spirit, but not with any grunt left, filling fast and disappearing at 1010 millibars. By midday on Sunday the High pressure will have moved East and encompassed much of North Western Scotland, whilst the rest of the UK will be also quite High pressure-wise.

OVERALL

Even less than there first appeared earlier in the week, but it’s still a no brainer – head to the Channel Islands! Failing that exposed / swell amplifying spots in the South West are the second best option. North West Scotland, may be fun at exposed spots too on Saturday, the biggest day for everyone. The East Coast will be onshore and cold. So a mixed bag overall everywhere, but it will be cold, so that may slant your decisions too!?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A small but fun sized for you guys, a lot more manageable than recently. Exposed beaches if you want more size, enjoy the offshores……..

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.
