Example Forecast 17/10/15 – 18/10/15 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1028 millibars will be over much of the UK on Saturday, with another High of 1020 millibars starting to cross the Atlantic from North America. There will be two major Low pressure entities, that will both being double centered. One double around Greenland, with one popping into the mainland out of the Labrador Sea at 996 millibars, with the other just off the Greenland South Coast at 986 millibars. Meanwhile in the Southern Atlantic there will be two more Low’s one of 999 millibars, and another at 1002 millibars, both of the Portuguese Coast. Sunday will see the UK High remain still about 1027 millibars over the mainland, but by now it will have moved out to cover a bigger area (having combined with a North American one) covering much of the Central and Northern Atlantic. The South Atlantic Low will have spun anti-clockwise combining the two Low’s into one of 1002 millibars, still of the Portuguese Coast. Meanwhile off Southern Greenland the picture will be similar with now one entity of 10005 millibars. All this will mean small swell generally, and onshore stuff for the East Coast, read the details and head to swell amplifying spots to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

A small one everywhere, the biggest surf looks to be on the East Coast, but it’ll have onshore winds throughout. Swell amplifying spots are your best bet throughout regardless of where you are, but the High over us will block swell in most parts, but do read the details to get the best of what there is……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Very small and only really at swell amplifying spots in the far South West (Wales will be smaller)……….

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.
