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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a big fat High pressure of 1035 millibars just off North Western Ireland in the near Northern Atlantic, this high will encompass much of the UK. Meanwhile in the Southern Mediterranean (around Libya) there’ll be another High pressure of 1021 millibars, these two entities will stretch South and Noprth respectively with an area of High pressure encompassing much of Central Europe. The Low pressures meanwhile will be in the Baltic Sea at 1007 millibars, the Norwegian Sea at 1009 millibars, North Eastern Greenland at 1007 millibars, Southern Greenland at 982 millibars, Canada / the Labrador Sea at 999 millibars, and North America at 996 millibars, the final Low will be 1011 millibars off Galicia. Sunday’s picture will see things change, as the far North American Low deepens to 987 millibars and moves into the Northern Western Atlantic heading towards Southern Greenland. Whilst all this is happening Saturday’s High pressure off Ireland will have moved South and East to center over Western Ireland at 1032 millibars, meanwhile the Mediterranean High will have moved North and East into the Mediterranean at 1023 millibars. The Galician Low will have dropped down to be off Portugal at 1013 millibars. The picture is somewhat more complicated than we have described here – we are just scratching the surface. But this the main meat and veg of all the action, read the details for your areas to get the best of what there is……….

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.
