Example Forecast 19/03/16 – 20/03/16 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see two big High pressures in the area, one of 1021 millibars around Western Russia / in Eastern Europe. With the second of 1035 millibars in the North Eastern Northern Atlantic West of Ireland. The fact that there are two High pressures so close and big together will mean that there is one entity / mass of High pressure stretching from eastern Europe, across South Eastern England and into the North Eastern Northern Atlantic. The Low pressures to counter all this close High action will be a fat Low of 1000 millibars in the Baltic Sea, another around the Denmark strait at 1011 millibars and theree more in the far Western Atlantic. A deepe Low of 982 millibars off Southern Greenland, a fatter Low of 1001 millibars in the labdrador Sea and the third coming out of North America at 996 millibars. The final Low that will complete Saturday’s picture will be off Galicia in the Atlantic at 1011 millibars. So as Sunday comes along the Atlantic High pressure will be squeezed as the Low pressures in the Atlantic grow and take over. The Low in the Denmark Strait on Saturday will move into the Greenland and Norwegian Sea, now at 1009 millibars. The Greenland Low will also have moved Eastwards, to be just West of Iceland at 1005 millibars. The North American Low will have moved East too and deepened to 988 millibars, whilst the Galician Low will have dropped South off South Western Portugal filling a bit to 1010 millibars. Meanwhile the Baltic Low will have rotated counter clockwise back into Scandinavia at 1007 millibars. All this will mean a small one generally, but stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

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.
