Example Forecast 05/03/16 – 06/03/16 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a big High pressure of 1033 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic North of the Azores, there will be three Low pressures to counter this High, one of 995 millibars in Eastern Europe, another of 1012 millibars in the Norwegian Sea, just East of Iceland, with the third South East of Greenland in the far Northern Atlantci at 1005 millibars. A second High pressure of 1032 millibars will be coming out of Northern Canada into the North Western Atlantic, but will not play any part in proceedings till Sunday. Sunday will see the Canadian High pressure start to combine with the Mid Atlantic High, with the former being about 1024 millibars, and the latter being 1028 millibars, now encompassing the Azores. So in a nutshell these two entities will take over the whole of the Atlantic, squeezing the Low off the Greenland Close through the Denmark Straight at 984 millibars, and the Low in the Norwegian Sea down into the North Sea and into North Eastern Europe. This will all mean a bit of mixed bag, so do read the details, and stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

OVERALL

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.
