Example Forecast 02/04/16 – 03/04/16 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

At first glance this coming weekend looks pretty similar to the one just gone, a High of 1025 millibars will be in North eastern Mainland Europe, with three major Lows countering the High. The first Low will be in the Norwegian Sea at 994 millibars, with a second in the Northern Atlantic at 987 millibars, South West of Iceland and North West of Ireland. The third Low will be in the Mid-Atlantic at 999 millibars West of the Cornwall and Brittany / the Bay of Biscay. A final fourth Low will be over North Eastern Canada at 970 millibars. Sunday will see the High pressure have been pushed South and East into the Black Sea at 1024 millibars, the Low in the Norwegian Sea will weaken and combine with the Low in the Northern Atlantic South West of Iceland, which will now be an entity of 992 millibars covering a big area, all the way South of Greenland into the Norwegian and North Sea’s. The Low in the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday will have moved South and East into Spain filling in the process to 1016 millibars. All this movement is due to a High that will have come out of North America at 1032 millibars, this High will push all the Low pressures as described, it will also keep the Canadian Low in the Labrador Sea at 976 millibars. All this will mean swell and bashable waves for some areas, but read your areas and 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.
