Example Forecast 18/12/10 – 19/12/10 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A North Low of 988 millibars will move down on Friday and cross the mainland of the UK, by Saturday it will have moved South to cover Southern England and the Channel. Meanwhile on the West Coast a small Low around Ireland at about 990 millibars will start to hover in the area. By Sunday the Irish Low’s path is unclear, but if it remains in situ it will be over Southern Ireland, as a Central European High of 1025 millibars starts to push East in our direction. If this actually develops as suggested, this will mean offshore winds for the West Coast, with some fun swell. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Everywhere will have at least on day of offshores at this stage, but where to head?! Western Scotland will be the cleanest of all, with two days of offshores and swell. The East Coast in general will only be clean only on Sunday (small caveat for Eastern Scotland perhaps on Saturday though ;0) ! ). The South West will be at it’s best on Sunday too, whilst Wales will have changeable winds making it good at certain places throughout. Make your choices and get ready to hunt……..! Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed bag in the West, but fun overall, the cleaner of the two days in the West will be Sunday at this stage. But don’t forget to look East as there will be clean waves there too on Sunday. So which Coast is nearer?! Have fun and explore……. Make sure you stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

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.
