Example Forecast 20/05/17 – 21/05/17 Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a fat Low pressure of 1009 millibars over the mainland United Kingdom, with a fat High pressure of 1032 millibars just off Southern Iceland in the North Eastern Atlantic. This High pressure, will have warm fronts stretching all the way down into the Mid Atlantic around the Azores at 1024 millibars. Another Low will come out of Newfoundland to counter this big area of High pressure, with a Low of 992 millibars. Sunday will see the picture remain largely the same with the Low pressure remaining over the United Kingdom, although it will have fattened somewhat to 1012 millibars. The High Pressure around Iceland will have rotated in situ somewhat to be West of Iceland at 1024 millibars, with the rest of the High stretching all the way into the Mid Atlantic and the Azores, still around 1024 millibars. There will still be a Low of 992 millibars around Newfoundland, but unable to get through, due to the areas of High pressure. All this will mean generally small lumpy swell everywhere, but read your areas and do stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on………

OVERALL

A small weekend throughout, with swell amplifying spots being your best hope. The South West and Wales will have a few lumpy ripples at time. The Channel Islands look to be the best, but read your areas and stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small everywhere, but the South West will be fun sized / ideal for you guys. But 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.
