Example Forecast 09/01/16 – 10/01/16 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok things have changed somewhat, not a lot, but a little so read the details to get the best of what there is…………Saturday will see a deep Low coming out of Greenland and the North Atlantic dropping into the Northern Mid-Atlantic at 968 millibars, this will spin counter clockwise before finally spawning another Low out of the deeper entity. So by Midday Saturday there will be a Low of 978 millibars off the Western Irish Coast, whilst the other main Low will be 976 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic. The High pressures will be in South Eastern Europe at 1004 millibars, with another over Turkey at 1020 millibars, whilst there will be two others, one over Greenland at 1028 millibars, with the final one over Canada at 1033 millibars. Sunday will see the Irish Low have moved East crossing the UK Mainland into the North Sea at 972 millibars, whilst Saturday’s Mid-Atlantic Low will have started to drop into the Southern Atlantic at 983 millibars, with a minor splinter Low of 986 millibars South East of it off Portugal. All the movement of these Low pressures will be due the High pressures around, in North Africa at 1022 millibars, the Black Sea at 1023 millibars, Nova Scotia at 1035 millibars, and Greenland at 1026 millibars, these will all fuel the Low movement over the period.

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.
