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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a deep Low pressure of 982 millibars South / South West of Iceland in the Near Northern Atlantic, North West of Northern Scotland. Whilst a weak tail associated with the Low will be heading towards Ireland and the United Kingdom. To counter this Low action there will be a High pressure of 1026 millibars in the Southern Mid-Atlantic around the Azores, whilst around the Labrador Sea there will be two fat-ish Low pressures of 1003 and 1007 millibars respectively which will be getting ready to move in our direction on Sunday. So by Sunday the situation will be similar, with a Low pressure of 985 millibars North / North West of Scotland, sitting in the North Sea between Scotland and Iceland, whilst to the South the High pressure will still be around the Azores and stretching into the Bay of Biscay at 1024 millibars. Meanwhile the Low pressure coming out of the Labrador Sea will have split, with one going North over Greenland at 1006 millibars, with the other South into the Western Atlantic at 995 millibars, pushed in part by the remnants of Tropical Storm Karl coming out of the Caribbean. All this will mean swell for most coasts, but the winds will play a big part of things, so read your details to get the best there is……….

OVERALL

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.
