Example Forecast 25/12/10 – 26/12/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Okay the pretty picture that was earlier in the week has changed somewhat, and it is as follows……..Saturday will see the whole of the UK bathed in a High of 1024 millibars, with a minor North Sea Low filling and deteriorating fast. However two big Mid Atlantic Low’s in the 980 millibar range will be moving in towards us and the mass of pressure will produce a child, spawn of Low if you like!?! This new front will in turn metamorphose into a deep Low overnight on Saturday at 974 millibars South West of Iceland. Meanwhile in the Mid Atlantic the Low’s will have continued to multiply and three will be lined up West of Ireland all at about 984 millibars, the UK High will have been pushed West (still at 1024 millibars) and be stretched from South East England, across the Channel and into the Netherlands. This will mean that Saturday’s West Coast swell will be delayed in getting in due in part to the severity of the High and also the severe Low movements. Make sure you read your particular area to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

Well a bit of a mixed bag really, everywhere will have a wave of sorts – but Sunday’s winds are the deciding factor everywhere. Our call would be a gander down in the South West, maybe head to a spot that has shelter and if it’s on get in there – no point in driving for miles hunting really. Make your call and be happy with what you get.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Saturday is ideal for you, in your comfortable size range and clean – get in there. By Sunday the winds will have cranked up quite a few notches, try to avoid getting a board in the head if you do go in. Probably best to just make a decision on somewhere and go there, don’t get into the driving for miles trap.

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.
