Example Forecast 11/12/10 – 12/12/10 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As predicted a High of 1028 milibars will encompass much of Western Coast, from Scotland, down through Eire and into Western England. A minor Low of 995 millibars in the Northern North Sea will move into Scandinavia, bringing with it a front which will move down through the North Sea proper, as it moves into Sweden and Germany. Another low off the Western Portuguese and Spanish Coasts in the West will slowly move in our direction over the period. By Sunday the High will have encompassed the whole of the UK ranging from 1020 millibars up to 1026 millibars. The only Low action will be off the North Western Spanish Coasts / South West of Eire at about 999 millibars, there will also be a big Low of 988 millibars up near Southern Greenland – these two will combine somewhat late on Sunday and into Monday. But the in situ High will still be in place in the high 1020 millibar range, and will consequently, block much of any swell from getting in.

OVERALL

A mixed bag, hmmm……..looks okay for Eastern Scotland on Saturday, and some East Coast spots that can handle the wind. Then deepest darkest South West perhaps on Sunday – will be small though for you guys. Our vote would be to head East and hunt, if you’re keen!?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The old, old adage is don’t get out of your depth, so head West for the small manageable surf, and tune your skills. But when was the last time you headed East?! You could go an explore (snow and ice allowing!), and challenge yourself?! Wherever you go, go carefully…………

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.
