Example Forecast 08/04/17 – 09/04/17 Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low pressure of 989 millibars just North East of Iceland, in the Greenland Sea. Meanwhile a Low of 1004 millibars will sit in the Mid-Atlantic at 1004 millibars, with a High pressure of 1026 millibars over North Eastern Europe, with another High pressure coming out of North America at 1032 millibars. Sunday will see the High pressure out of North America move Eastwards into the Mid-Atlantic fattening in the process to 1035 millibars. This movement will result in an Eastern movement of all entities. Consequently Iceland’s Low will move East too into the Norwegian Sea towards Northern Norway, fattening to 993 millibars. Saturday’s Low will in the Mid-Atlantic will also have moved East fattening slightly to 1007 millibars just of the Galician Coast, with a High pressure of 1023 millibars in the Bay of Biscay. All this will mean swell for Westerly facing breaks, with Scotland being the biggest by far, and a little ripple on the East Coast. But do 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.
