Sunday will see Saturday’s double centred Low in the near Atlantic off Ireland continue to rotate counter clockwise, and form one entity at about 998 millibars, just off the Irish West Coast. The High pressures will be similar to Saturday with a High pressure of 1028 millibars in the Norwegian Sea, off the North Western Coast of Norway. Whilst the North Western Russian High will still be in situ at 1039 millibars, whilst around the Mediterranean a High pressure of 1023 millibars will have formed from Saturday’s Spanish High. Then coming out of the Southern Atlantic a Low pressure of 1005 millibars off the South Western Coast of Portugal, whilst in the far Western Atlantic will be Ex-Hurricane Nicole, now deepening to 947 millibars. In the Northern Atlantic will be a High pressure of 1021 millibars over Southern Greenland with a fat Low of 1005 millibars to the South East of Greenland.

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.
