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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1034 millibars dominating the Southern Mid Atlantic, stretching from the Azores all the way into the Bay of Biscay. The Low pressures will be coming out of North America, one at 992 millibars, another weaker / fatter Low of 995 millibars, just South East of Greenland. The final Low action will be just North East of Iceland in the Greenland Sea at 994 millibars, the last Low will be a fat one filling at 1013 millibars in the North Sea. Sunday will see the High in the Southern Mid Atlantic get fatter to 1035 millibars and extend even further into the Bay of Biscay and Western France. This huge section of High pressure will push all pressure systems East and out of the way, as well as blocking anything from getting in really. Another new High pressure of 1029 millibars will come out of North America. The only surviving Low pressure will be one of 983 millibars now South West of Iceland. All this will mean generally not a lot of swell anywhere to mention, as Sunday comes more swell will start to get into the South West and Wales, head for swell amplifying spots to get the best there is, and don’t be too picky about the wind. Read the details for your area to get the best of what there is……….

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.
