Example Forecast 18/12/10 – 19/12/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Well things have cleared up a bit since earlier in the week, with a stack of three Lows moving down the North Sea on Friday arvo at about 990 millibars. By Saturday these Low’s will have encompassed the whole of the UK at 992 millibars, with a new small front forming over Southern Ireland which will move West as the day goes on going straight into South Western England and Wales. Sunday will see another cold front and associated Low of 996 millibars drop down South West of Ireland by midday Sunday, whilst Saturday’s Low will have moved West and crossed Southern England and be off the Norfolk Coast.

OVERALL

The only place that looks any good is the Scottish West Coast, particularly on Saturday with the offshores; but they will be strong, so you’ll need shelter. The rest of the UK will be a mixed bag, with certain spots on the East Coast being okay, more so up North in Scotland again. The South West will have a mixed bag, okay and then naff at various times. Read your relevant regions to make the most of what there is.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A mixed bag in the West, but it’s always good for you guys to get wet when you can. Mind the adverse weather though, may make driving a challenge!

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.
