Example Forecast 26/03/11 – 27/03/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As forseen earlier this week, and during the week too. Basically a repeat of the week will occur in so far as two Highs of 1020 millibars - North West of Eire and in the near North Sea will combine to encompass mainland UK as it moves. The concentration of the Highs will be powerful enough to keep a bigger Low of 972 millibars off the North Eastern Coast of North America from getting any nearer, and keep the two fat Icelandic Lows (1012 millibars) from getting into Scotland, or rather having much effect. Further South another two fat Lows in the 1000 millibar range, the first in the Western Mid-Atlantic, off the Galician Coast and the other dissolving into Brittany - these will be the only hope of swell for the South West. By Sunday the High will be over us entirely at 1020 milibars, the hope of a minor swell pulse will come from the North American Low still in situ (off the North Eastern North American Coast) and still about 972 millibars. This Low will spawn two minor fronts in the Mid-Atalantic, both in the 1000 millibar range that will try and break through the wall of High’s that are encompassing us. There is a hope that some will get through for the South West at least by Sunday – but not a lot - the plus is the weather will be good!

OVERALL

Well the East Coast is mucked up due to everything happening around it / in it’s sphere of influence, but there will be a small wave. Not a lot happening in Scotland, the best bet is the South West. Which will be small but fun hot doggy waves with offshores. The Channel Islands and the South West are the call.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

More fun in the sun, or with the small waves at least. Saturday will be the day to stretch your legs so to speak, as by Sunday things will have increased a bit; but you should still be able to get out back and have fun.

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.
