Example Forecast 07/11/15 – 08/11/15 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low of 979 millibars off the North West Coast of Western Scotland / North Western Ireland in the Northern Atlantic. There will be two other Low’s one off South Eastern Greenland (West of Iceland) at 968 millibars, another Low coming out of North America at 972 millibars, with a third one in the Southern Atlantic at 1013 millibars. The latter Low will be so fat, as it will be filling due to three High Pressures in the 1030 millibar range all over Mainland and Southern Europe. Sunday will see one of the High pressures move West into the Bay of Biscay, still at 1032 millibars, this movement will force all the Low pressures into the North Atlantic, with the North American Low having got deeper to 964 millibars, coming to rest just off the Southern Greenland. The Low West of Iceland will have moved East into the Norwegian Sea, now deeper too at 968 millibars. The Low North West of Scotland on Saturday will have moved East too crossing the Northern North Sea and into Mainland Norway, now at 984 millibars. So the Low’s will be in the North, whilst over Mainland Europe there will still be the dominance of the High pressures. All this will mean swell for most places, but the winds, and keeping an eye on things as the week develops will be key, sty tuned……….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland is definitely the call especially on Saturday, the Scottish East Coast and East Coast will both have swell, the key question will be how will the winds effect things? The South West and Wales will have swell throughout, both being fun at times. The South Coast and the Channel Islands will also have swell, read the details to get the best of what there is. 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.
