Example Forecast 01/04/17 – 02/04/17 Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a deep Low pressure of 971 millibars in the Western Atlantic, South of Greenland. There will be two other fatter Low pressures, one of 995 millibars over Iceland, and another fatter one of 990 millibars in the Northern Norwegian Sea. The main High pressure to counter the Low pressures will be off the Portuguese Coast in the Near Atlantic at 1029 millibars. Sunday will see the Portuguese High move into the Bay of Biscay and into South Western England weakening to about 1026 millibars. Saturday’s Low pressures will remain, with the main Western Low fattening slightly in situ to about 979 millibars, with the Icelandic Low rotating back into the North Atlantic and deepening to 970 millibars. All this will mean swell in the far South West and Wales, although winds will not be great till Saturday, but read the details and stay tuned, as things may change as the week goes on………

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.
