Example Forecast 26/02/11 – 27/02/11 – Thursday Early Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Okay, well things have solidified a bit more since earlier in the week, in so far as the Greenland Low’s will be somewhat polluted (if you like!?!) by a small High of 1010millibars. So it reads like this…….two Low’s on and off Greenland’s East Coast both at about 970 millibars are the tail-end of Greenland’s Friday Low-fest. Meanwhile to the West there will be this weak High of 1010 millibars, while on the Western Coast another weak Low forms. If that were not enough a North American Low of 970 millibars will start to head West into the North Atlantic. Still very much in Saturday, we now drop South and see a double centered High of 1028 to 1030 millibars coming up into the near Atlantic over the period. Sunday midday will see a big High of 1032 millbars in the near Atlantic, casting it’s warm front Eastwards in our general direction, whilst in the North Western Atlantic will be the now bigger and deeper North American Low of 960 millibars, with the previous day’s Greenland / Icelandic Low’s now out of our sphere way up into the Greenland Sea and beyond.

OVERALL

Big, but you’ll have to hunt somewhat in Scotland and use your knowledge, flat for the East Coast, a few ripples for exposed South Coast spots. The South West will have the waves, but also the winds, probably the best bet for things is Wales, which should be fun. As ever hunt and ye shall find….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Time to learn about winds, finding shelter and head…..?! Well the choice is your’s some small manageable South Coast action may be best suited or hunt in the land of dragons!?!

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.
