Example Forecast 05/03/11 – 06/03/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1032 millibars will be covering the UK on Friday, by Saturday it will be pushed North combing with a North Atlantic High and forming one bigger entity at 1034 millibars off Eastern Iceland. But the High pressure is now so big that even the mainland UK will still be encompassed at 1028 millibars. The Low action will come off the Western Portuguese Coast in the form of a fat one at 1012 millibars (fat due to the immense High we have), BUT and here’s the kicker……..an Icelandic Low of 994 millibars will huge the Greenland Coast moving East all the while over the period. Sunday will see a solidification of the score, ie fixing it more in place and it becoming more stable. So although at first it all looks becalmed due to the High, the Greenland Low will produce some swell for Scotland and parts of the North, and the Portuguese Low will also produce swell for parts of the South West to a limited extent. But stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Deepest darkest Kernow both on the South and North Coasts would be our call. For those North of the border in the Highlands it’s a mixed bag, filled with pot-luck! Not the greatest of weekends, but there are waves worth scouting for the keen. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well the South West exposed beaches like Perranporth in the dunes would be worth a gander, we doubt a lot will get in to Devon, or at least a lot less will. For those on the East Coast, Sunday could be fun, again exposed beaches that get the swell. Stay tuned for further updates, 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.
