Example Forecast 16/04/16 – 17/04/16 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday midday will see a series of Low pressures stretching from the Southern Mid Atlantic North and East through the Channel and up into North eastern Europe. So it looks as follows, the Southern Mid Atlantic Low will be 1009 millibars around the Azores, with the second Low in the Channel at 1007 millibars, the third and fourth Low pressures will be in North Eastern Europe both around 1005 millibars. Finally there will also be two Northerly based Low pressures, one off the Norwegian Coast at 997 millibars, and another off Eastern Greenland, entering the Denmark Strait at 1001 millibars. To counter all this Low action will be a High in the Black Sea at 1021 millibars, another in North Africa at 1020 millibars, and a third in the Labrador Sea at 1024 millibars. Sunday will see all the Low pressures move East as a High pressure from out of North America / the Labrador Sea drops down into the Mid Atlantic at 1020 millibars, pushing all of Saturday’s Lows East into mainland Europe, with a couple of remaining Low’s in the Bay of Biscay at 1012, and around the Azores of 1012 millibars. The only real other Low will be in the Denmark Straight at 996 millibars, with a weaker filling Low of 1000 millibars filling over Scandinavia, but the combination of these two entities will be a splinter of Low pressure down into the North Sea. All this will mean most of the action will be in Scotland and the East Coast, 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.
