Example Forecast 16/04/11 – 17/04/11 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1024 millibars will move in to meet the High already over us of 1019 millibars on Saturday. Forming a bigger High of 1024 millibars over mainland England and Eire by Sunday. As previously foreseen the only Low action will be off the Eastern Greenland Coast at about 980 millibars, this Low will churn one major cold front across to us over the period; as it hovers in situ. Clearly the majority of any swell will be hitting Northern Scotland, and very little residual will wrap around underneath Eire, and none into the North Sea to speak of. Make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is ……..

OVERALL

A weak weekend, or small weekend for the South West and Wales. The North Scottish Coast will be clean and fun / your main hope?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A small, but rideable weekend for you guys, but you’ll have to head into Cornwall to find the waves.

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.
