Example Forecast 19/03/11 – 20/03/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The High of 1032 millibars sitting over the mainland UK will be pushed Eastwards over the period and end up over Germany by midday on Sunday. The Low action will come in the form of five Low’s spread out to the North West, West and South West of us. The details are as follows, three Lows spread out from Iceland to South Eastern Greenland, all at about 990 millibars will move North East over the period into the Northern North Sea. Their movement (combined with the other Low’s) will help push the High into Germany for Sunday, but they will also bring quite a bit of swell to Scotland. Meanwhile off the North American seaboard a Low of 990-ish millbars will start to push East towards us ending up in the Mid-Atlantic by Sunday at 992 millibars. The final minor Low system will be off the South Western Portugal at about 1000 millibars – this will have little effect to us, but helps complete the overall picture and push that High on it’s Eastward track. So in summary on paper it is all good, but the devil as always is in the details, as some places won’t get a lot of swell, and others with swell too much wind. Make sure you read you regions to get the most of what there is…...

OVERALL

Well the choices are clear, deepest darkest Kernow and put up with the winds on Sunday or head up to Scotland!?! Our choice would be the latter, but the reality is the former is a lot closer…. Have fun wherever you go……

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.
