Example Forecast 22/10/16 – 23/10/16 Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low pressure of 989 millibars North West of Portugal / North West of Galicia in the Near Mid-Atlantic, whilst a High pressure of 1030 millibars will be in the Middle of the Atlantic behind it. There will be another Low pressure of 986 millibars sitting in the Northern Atlantic South East of Greenland. Whilst in North Eastern Europe there will be a Low pressure of 1012 millibars, with another High pressure of 1019 millibars in Eastern Europe, meanwhile in North Western Russia there will be a High pressure of around 1044 millibars, which will be stretching all the way into Scandinavia. Whilst in the Northern Norwegian Sea there will be another High pressure of 1025 millibars, the combination of these High pressures will mean that the area of High pressure will encompass much of the United Kingdom on Saturday. Sunday will see things remain more or less the same, except that the Near Atlantic Low will have deepened to 979 millibars, still being off Portugal and Galicia and stretch into the Bay of Biscay and towards South Western England. The High in the Mid-Atlantic will have weakened marginally to 1027 millibars, to the North East will be a new Low of 994 millibars coming out of Newfoundland, with the Greenland Low in the North Atlantic still around 997 millibars, still South East of Greenland. The Russian High will be fatter at 1051 millibars stretching across Scandinavia and into parts of North Eastern England and Scotland. This will mean small clean swell for Westerly spots, those in the East will be bigger but a lot lumpier. Read your areas 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.
