Example Forecast 29/01/11 – 30/01/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed a bit since earlier in the week so make sure your read the overall recommendation bit and your individual areas to get the best of what there is. Basically the High will come in on Saturday, but not be as encompassing / swell swatting as earlier feared, or rather residual swell will remain. A big High (in area covered) of 1028 millibars will move in from the Western Atlantic to encompass all of Eire and Northern Scotland, not excluding the mainland at a slightly weaker 1024 millibars. However two Lows of about 990 millibars off the Eastern Coast of Greenland will fester in situ on Saturday, before moving off North East towards Iceland over the period. By Sunday the High will now be over the mainland UK at 1028 millibars, with the Greenland Low now moving slightly East towards Iceland. So by Sunday what swell there is (in the South West) will be somewhat swatted, except at swell amplifying spots. Read on for the meat and veg of the weekend………….

OVERALL

Right well there is a WARNING / Proviso in this Weekend’s Outlook in so far as the winds shown could be somewhat variable at times, so if you se it ride it – just in case. Our choice would be the Channel Islands / swell amplifying South West spots on Saturday, followed by Northern Scotland on Sunday. But such jet-setting is pretty impractical in reality, so you get what there is, where you are!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

An ideal Saturday for you, small and very manageable. But by Sunday the swell will have dropped off a bit. But a nice weekend, away – albeit a tad chilly perhaps!

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.
