Example Forecast 14/11/15 – 15/11/15 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Okay things have changed since earlier in the week, so read the details to get the best there is………. Friday will see a big Low of 966 millibars (the newly christened Abigail) move rapidly between Iceland and Northern Scotland, and into the Norwegian Sea. With a another fatter Low pressure of 995 mmilbars just off North Western Iceland and the Denmark Strait. The final big Low will be 987 millibars in the South Western Atlantic, coming out of North America. The High pressures will be in the Black Sea at 1029 millibars, the Bay of Biscay at 1035 millibars, and Mainland Greenland at 1013 millibars, and the final one coming out the Labrador Sea at 1015 millibars. These High pressures will suck and push the Low pressures in our direction, so with that in mind Saturday, will see Abigail having moved just off the Norwegian Coast, and having fattened to 979 millibars. The South Western Atlantic Low will have moved North and East into the Mid-Atlantic, now at 991 millibars. The High around the Bay of Biscay will also have moved East and now started to head into Mainland Europe at 1033 millibars. Another High pressure of 1024 millibars. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic Low just off North Western Ireland at 985 millibars, this will be main Low, with another coming out of North America the other side of the pond at 986 millibars. There will also be a minor splinter fat Low of 997 millibars, just off Western Iceland. The counter to all these Low’s will be a Greenland High of 1021 millibars, with a High still over mailand Europe / the Mediterranean ranging from 1024 to 1026 millibars. All this will swell will mean swell everywhere, but you will have to hunt, but read the details to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland will definitely be fun and challenging at times, but will have swell throughout – Sunday may be the better of the two days due to the offshore winds. 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 you’ll have to hunt as per normal. Good hunting for everyone……….

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.
