Example Forecast 30/01/16 – 31/01/16 – Friday AM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 975 millibars will sit in the Northern North Sea on Midday Saturday, with another in Low in the Norwegian Sea at 936 millibars, just off the Scandinavian Coast. There will be another weaker Low in the Northern North Atlantic South East of Greenland at 989 millibars, with a third final deeper Low of 977 millibars coming out of North America. The High pressures will be over Greenland at 1009 millibars, in the Mediterranean at 1033 millibars and around the Azores at 1043 millibars. Sunday will see the Azorean High weaken somewhat to 1040 millibars, it will start to combine with the Mediterranean High which is still in situ at 1030 millibars. So from the Southern Atlantic the area of High pressure will extend from all the way into the Mediterranean. Meanwhile the American Low will move East into the Northern Atlantic and combine with the Greenland Low, creating one deep Low of 964 millibars in the North Atlantic. The North Sea Low will have moved into Mainland Scandinavia, whilst the Low in the Norwegian Sea will still be in situ at 960 millibars. All this will mean there will be swell, but the winds will not be good for a lot of places, make sure you read your areas to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

The East Coast all the way up into Scotland on Saturday, and the South Coast throughout look to be your best bets. Hunting and a bit of luck will be needed = good hunting……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Too big for you in the South West and Wales, if you are in that neck of the woods, head for sheltered spots. The South Coast and generally sheltered spots are your best bet. Always play safe within your limits……….

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.
