Example Forecast 24/12/16 – 25/12/16 Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low pressure of 975 millibars in the Northern Mid Atlantic, with a fatter Low of 982 millibars South East of Greenland entering the Denmark Strait. In the Norwegian Sea there will be a Low of 954 millibars with another weak Low in Scandinavia itself at 980 millibars. The High pressures to counter these Low pressures will be a High pressure of 1032 millibars in South Eastern Europe, with a fatter High pressure in the Southern Atlantic off the Azores, Portuguese Coast and stretching into the Bay of Biscay at 1040 millibars, the final High will be a weak one of 1012 millibars over North Western Greenland. Sunday will see all the Low pressures moving North and East, so by midday Sunday, the result will be a deep Low just South and East of Iceland at 955 millibars. Saturday’s Low in the Norwegian Sea will have filled and moved North to be around the Northern Norwegian Coast in the 982 millibar range. Meanwhile in the Southern Atlantic there will be a band of High pressures stretching from just West of the Azores at 1038 millibars, with Saturday’s main High, now just around Hossegor at 1035 millibars, with another High again of 1035 millibars around Tunisia, with the final High in South Eastern Europe at 1027 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.
