Example Forecast 24/10/15 – 25/10/15 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High of 1032 millibars coming out of the Azores / Southern Atlantic, moving up the Coast of Portugal. It’s influence will reach as far up as South Western England, but the real action will come from the plethora of Low pressures to the North and West of it. So to start with there will be a Low of 981 millibars East of Iceland in the Norwegian Sea, another fat one South East of Greenland in the Northern Atlantic at 999 millibars, the third and fourth Low pressures will be coming out of North America at 997 millibars, and 996 millibars respectively. Sunday will see the North American Low pressures move rapidly East combing together to form one entity of 974 millibars, sucking in also the Low off the Greenland Coast, which will be just above it at 987 millibars. Bioth of these will come to sit just South West and West of Ireland respectively, by Midday Sunday. The High pressure in the near Southern Atlantic meanwhile will have been split into two, one entity of 1026 millibars, which will have been pushed through the Bay of Biscay and into Mainland Europe, whilst the other half will be 1024 millibars, still off the South Western Portuguese Coast. All this will mean small swell generally, and onshore stuff for the East Coast, read the details and stay tuned……….

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.
