Example Forecast 23/04/16 – 24/04/16 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1038 millibars in the Northern Mid Atlantic by Midday, which will dominate much of the UK as well as blocking most of the Low pressures that are out in the Atlantic from getting in. There will be one fat Low off the Galician Coast at 1018 millibars, with another off the North American Coast at 985 millibars. Sunday will see the Galician Low having disappeared, whilst the Northern Mid Atlantic High pressure will still be in the Mid Northern Atlantic, but a bit weaker at 1034 millibars. All the Low action to talk of will be around the far Western Atlantic around North America with four hovering, one at 995 millibars West of the Azores, with a second, third and fourth fatter versions at 1002 millibars all off the north American Coast. All this will mean a weak weekend overall, the only hope is on the East Coast, so read your details and stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

OVERALL

Not great anywhere really, the best bet looks to be the East Coast for swell, but some major wind dodging will be needed. Read your areas and stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small in the South West, the East Coast meanwhile will be sizeable but lumpy, the best bet is probably Norfolk and spots that can handle the winds. Read the details 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.
