Example Forecast 13/02/16 – 14/02/16 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a series of five Low pressures stretching from Eastern Europe of 993 millibars, there will be a another Low in the Channel at 975 millibars, the next one will be just off the Western Irish Coast at 981 millibars, followed by another Low of 981 millibars in the Near Northern Atlantic, with the final Low of 995 millibars coming out of Canada / the Labrador Sea in the far Western Atlantic. So all these Atlantic Low pressures will be stretching up to the North West, to counter this will be a High pressure will be in the Mid Southern Atlantic at 1028 millibars. Sunday will see the High Pressure get fatter in pressure to about 1036 millibars, and increase in area encompassing the Southern Azores, and stretch up into the Mid-Atlantic. This High will keep the Northern Atlantic in situ blocking from moving towards Northern Europe, and making it fill, the High will also block the Candaian Low’s from moving East, in fact making them form into one entity of 971 millibars, by Midday on Sunday. So in short by Sunday there will be no new Low pressures moving in, and what Low pressures there were in / around Northern Europe / the UK on Saturday will also have been pushed East into Eastern / Mainland Europe by the Mid Atlantic High. All this will mean favourable winds and swell on for Western Coasts particularly in the South West and Wales, read the details……….

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.
