Example Forecast 30/04/16 – 01/05/16 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low pressure of 1008 millibars in the North Sea, with another filling Low of 1027 millibars over Scandinavia, whilst there will be two other major Lows, one of about 1004 millibars in the Greenland Sea. Followed by a third Low of 994 millibars in the Northern Atlantic, just South East of Greenland. The final low that will complete this picture will be a fat one coming out of Canada at 1000 millibars. The High pressure to counter all this Low action will be a High pressure of 1034 millibars just North East of the Azores / West of Portugal and Galicia in the Southern Mid-Atlantic. Sunday will see the High remain in situ, weakening slightly, but it’s presence will will mean that all the Low action will be concentrated / kept to the North around Greenland, Iceland and Scotland. So the Canadian Low will now be about 1004 millibars in the Northern Atlantic just South east of Greenland, whilst the originally Low will have moved just South of Iceland at 1008 millibars. The North Sea will still have it’s hovering Low of about 1008 millibars. All this will mean generally unfavourable winds for most places, although the Scottish east Coast on Saturday looks worth a gander. But read your details and stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

OVERALL

Eastern Scotland on Saturday looks fun and clean. The rest of the UK will just be degrees lumpiness. But read your areas and stay tuned, as things may change as the week develops……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Lumpy and bashable, good learning for you on Saturday in Wales and the South West. But by Sunday the swell will have jumped a lot to be overhead, so head for places that are more sheltered. 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.
