Example Forecast 09/04/11 – 10/04/11 – Thursday Arvo Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Okay well as suggested earlier in the week there will be a lot of High pressure movement over us, and a s a result the better of the days will be Saturday everywhere. Here’s the detail, a High pressure of 1024 millibars will be over the mainland UK on Saturday, and will slowly move off the Eastern Coast of the UK as the day goes on. There will also be another High of 1026 millibars off the Western Portuguese Coast slowly moving in our direction. The only Low action out there will be off the Southern tip of Greenland at 970 millibars, this will throw some fronts in our direction on Saturday – which will produce the swell that will be out there. By Sunday the Portuguese High will have moved North East, or rather super stretched North East over Biscay and into South Western England now at 1032 millibars, whilst the Greenland Low will have moved slightly North east along the Greenland Coast, still in the 980 millibar range, and still churning fronts off the Low. A couple of these fronts will have deepened and actually create their own Low of 986 millibars in the Greenland Sea above Iceland. So make sure you read your individual areas as things may well have changed compared to earlier in the week.

OVERALL

A small weekend everywhere, Saturday is the day – or best hope everywhere. Exposed spots on the Noarth Coast of Scotland on Saturday is the call, followed by a smaller South West on Saturday too. By Sunday things will have degraded slightly everywhere, a small but fun weekend, ideal to take your partner to the beach? – small & Sunnyish!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

An ideal weekend for you guys, not challenging at all. Saturday will be clean, but Sunday will be smaller and bit lumpy due to the light onshores – but that’s no excuse, explore, practice 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.
