Moving into the Mid Western Atlantic there will be another Low of 998 millibars, with a final Low of 993 millibars off South Eastern Greenland. Sunday will see the Mid Western Atlantic Low deepen and move North East rapidly to 984 millibars, coming to be North West of Ireland, whilst the Greenland Low will remain in situ South East of Greenland at 989 millibars.

OVERALL

The South West will be small throughout, the best bet is the East Coast which will be fun and bashable. Read your areas and make full use of the tides and shelter from the winds 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.
