Example Forecast 14/11/15 – 15/11/15 – Tuesday PM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see two Low pressures moving North East out of the Western Atlantic, one of 989 millibars, with another behind it at 988 millibars pushing it along. By Saturday these two Low pressures will be in our area of influence, with the main one being now 983 millibars North West of Scotland, with the second now 994 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic. In addition to these two major players there will be a Low in the Norwegian Sea (that will have come out of the North Atlantic on Friday), now at 981 millibars. The Counter to all these Low pressures will be a fat High pressure of 1037 millibars over Central France, with another one over Greenland at 1019 millibars. Sunday will see the Lows continue on their Easterly tract with Saturdays Scottish Low having quickly moved across the Mainland UK, North Sea and into Eastern Europe, now at 996 millibars. The Low in the Norwegian Sea will now be 992 millibars off the Norwegian Coast, with the previously Mid-Atlantic Low now at 992 millibars off Western Scotland. There will still be a High of 1024 millibars over Central Europe, and Greenland will still have a High of about 1024 millibars. This will all 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 will definitely be fun and challenging at times, but have swell throughout – Sunday may be the better of the two days. Meanwhile the South West and Wales will have lots of swell, the key will be finding shelter from those winds, local knowledge and hunting will be key. The South Coast will also have lots of swell, but 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.
