Example Forecast 18/06/16 – 19/06/16 – Wednesday AM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday looks like the start of the weekend will be a tale of two fronts, to the North of Scotland will be a High pressure of 1021 millibars, with another High pressure of 1032 millibars West of Portugal in the Southern Mid Atlantic. Meanwhile to the West will be two other Low pressures, one South East of Greenland in the Northern Atlantic of 992 millibars, whilst in the Western Atlantic coming out of North America will be another Low of 993 millibars. Sunday will see the Northern Scottish High move East into the North Sea fattening to 1024 millibars as it goes, whilst the Portuguese High will still be 1032 millibars off Western Portugal in the Southern Mid Atlantic. Meanwhile the two Low pressures on Saturday will combine in the Northern Atlantic, now being West of Ireland, but this entity will be double centred at 984 millibars and 991 millibars respectively. All this will mean, small swell in the South West, but a weak area of Low pressure around the North Sea, may provide swell on the East Coast – but do stay tuned, as with so many High pressures around things may well change as the week goes on……….

OVERALL

The South West will be small throughout, the best bet at this stage is the East Coast as a weak area of Low pressure around the North Sea, may provide swell on the East Coast – but do stay tuned, as with so many High pressures around things may well change as the week goes on……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Ideal sized for you in the South West, get in there and dominate. If you’re on the East, stay tuned as things will change as the week goes on, if it is really head high, head for sheltered spots to shave a little off the size. Stay tuned 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.
