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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

There has been a change Saturday will see a double centred Low of 976 millibars and 970 millibars respectively off Wedtern Iceland and just South East of Greenland in the North Atlantic. Meanwhile in the Southern Atlantic there will be a fat Low of 1004 millibars, with a deep Low coming out of North Amewrica at 960 millibars. The counter to all these Low pressures will be three High pressures in Mainland Europe and Russia, so in a left to right fashion a High of 1029 millibars in the Mediterranean / Southern France, another of 1029 millibars again, this time around Albania. With the third and final one in Western Russia at 1030 millibars. Sunday’s picture will change a lot, mainly as the Low in the Southern Atlantic moves rapidly North and East to be about 987 millibars off Western Ireland, the Lows around Iceland and Greenland will have moved East too into the Greenland Sea, whilst the North American Low will have moved out of Mainland North America into the North Western Atlantic at 964 millibars. The High pressures will still be in Western Europe will have fattened to 1031 millibars in both cases, with the Albanian High moving North and East into Eastern Europe, the Russian High will have been pushed into more into Russia. In short there’s swell, but you will have to head for swell amplifying spots that can handle the winds……….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks to have some size throughout, and the South West and Wales too, but this weekend will all be about the wind. So hunting for spots that get a bit of shelter from the winds will be the call, good hunting……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

If it’s too big for you, head for a more sheltered spots – always surf within your limits. Good hunting……….

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.
