Example Forecast 24/09/16 – 25/09/16 Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a complex area of Low pressures in / around the UK. ALow of 992 millibars will be just off the North West Irish Coast, with another Low of 994 millibars in the near Atlantic off Western Ireland. Meanwhile just South East of Iceland (North of Scotland) will be a Low of 986 millibars, with another South West of Iceland (above the Irish Low pressures) at 995 millibars. In the far Western Atlantic there will be a fat Low pressure in the Southern Labrador Sea at 1005 millibars, with a similarly fat Low pressure of 1005 millibars around Newfoundland. Whilst in the Mid Atlantic there will be a relatively average High pressure of 1024 millibars around the Azores. Sunday will see things change markedly with the remnants of Tropical Storm Karl coming out of the Caribbean and into the Southern Northern Atlantic off the North American Coast, Saturday’s two Fat Low pressures meanwhile will have combined to form one entity of 988 millibars in the North Western Atlantic South of Greenland. The Mid Atlantic High pressure will have grown since Saturday in area and fatness to 1027 millibars stretching from the Azores into the Bay of Biscay. As all this has changed, around the United Kingdom will be a Low of 993 millibars just off the North Western Coast of Scotland, whilst South of Iceland there will be a Low pressure of 990 millibars, with Saturday’s Low pressures having moved into the Norwegian Sea off Scandinavia at 9886 millibars.

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.
