Example Forecast 27/02/16 – 28/02/16 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a big High pressure of 1035 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic around the Azores, the counter to this big will be four Low pressures two to the East, one off South West England at 990 millibars, with a second in South Eastern France / the North Eastern Mediterranean at 986 millibars. There will be another fat Low of 1005 millibars, which will be moving Eastwards into Russia over the period. Finally there will be another High of 1032 millibars sitting over North Eastern Greenland with a final Low coming out of North Eastern Canada at 965 millibars. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic High pressure dominate even more at 1032 millibars, combining with the Greenland High, stretching all the way up Iceland as one big area of High pressure in the 1028 millibar range. As a result the Low pressure that was in the Near Atlantic of South West England will be mshunted South and East into the Mediterranean to combine with the other Low forming one bigger entity at 992 millibars in the Northern Mediterranean. As a result of the big area of High pressure stretching from the Southern Mid-Atlantic all the way to the Northern Atlantic will block the Canadian Low from moving eastwards at all, creating a barrier, so the Canadian Low will hover around the Labrador Sea in the 980 millibar range.

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.
