Example Forecast 04/03/17 – 05/03/17 Thursday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a deep-ish low pressure of 981 millibars off the South West Coast of England, with another deep Low in the far North West coming out of the Labrador Sea at 963 millibars. The High pressures to counter all this will be in the Southern Mid Atlantic around the Azores at 1020 millibars, far East of Europe in the Black Sea at 1028 millibars, another over Mainland Greenland at 1017 millibars, and the final fourth High in the Norwegian Sea at 1020 millibars. By Sunday the picture will have changed radically with a series of four matching High pressures stretching from the Northern Labrador Sea, to Greenland, the Norwegian Sea and mainland Scandinavia all at about 1023 millibars. Meanwhile stretching from Newfoundland in the West all the way to Italy there will be a band of Low pressures. Which will start with 976 millibars in the far Western Atlantic around Newfoundland, with a then very deep Low of 952 millibars in the Mid Atlantic, two Low pressures of 989 millibars, one in the Channel and the other just off Northern Ireland, followed the Low of 1000 millibars just off the Italian West Coast in the Mediterranean. All this will mean mixed conditions for most coasts, the best by far is the South Coast of England. Read your areas………

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.
