Example Forecast 04/06/16 – 05/06/16 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1030 millibars sitting above Scotland / South East of Iceland, and encompassing much of the mainland UK at about 1020 millibars. Meanwhile in the Mid Atlantic there will be a deep Low pressure of 985 millibars. Sunday will see the High pressure move North and East into the Norwegian Sea at 1029 millibars South West of Ireland. The rough translation of all this is offshore winds for the South West, but with no real swell getting in over the period for the South West. Scotland and the east Coast will have a few ripples due mainly to the continued cross-onshore winds. Read your areas to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

Flat in the South West and generally everywhere, the best bet is North East Scotland, but there isn’t a lot out there……….

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.
