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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1039 millibars in the Northern Mid Atlantic with two others over Greenland at 1034 millibars and 1024 millbars respectively. The Low’s to counter all this High action will be in the Barents Sea at 1003 millibars, a weaker entity filling fast at about 1012 millibars in the Northern North Sea. There will also be a couple of Low pressures around Southern Europe both around 1004 millibars. But the major Sea Low pressures effecting us will be off the Galician Coast at 1019 millibars, with another Low of 993 in the Western Atlantic coming out of North Eastern America at 993 millibars. Sunday will see the Mid Atlantic High still in situ, but slightly weaker at 1036 millibars, the Greenland High pressures will still be in situ more or less, the main one will have fattened to 1032 millibars, whilst the other High will have migrated into the Denmark Strait at 1030 millibars. The Low pressure in the Barent Sea will have spawned another Low, both Low pressures will be about 1003 and 1007 millibars respectively. Meanwhile the Galician Low will have moved rapidly East into Europe, the Low coming out of North America will also be moving East towards the Azores, and getting fatter along the way to about 995 millibars. All this will mean a weak weekend overall, the only hope is on the East Coast on Saturday, with Norfolk and Suffolk being our Call for Sunday……….

OVERALL

Not great anywhere really, the best bet looks to be the East Coast for swell, but some major wind dodging will be needed – although Saturday could be fun for the main section of the East Coast. Then Norfolk / Suffolk on Sunday = good hunting……….

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.……….

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.
