    This surge effect is likely to be felt in strong winds that have been blowing from the same direction for some time and, even if there are not strong winds in your area, winds within 160km (100 miles) or so could cause this surge effect. There can be lower than predicted tides when the wind is flowing against the tidal stream. The other cause for the tidal surge is that the stronger winds will often be associated with a depression or low-pressure area, giving the tides more freedom to rise higher because the atmospheric pressure is less.

    The airflow will usually follow fairly closely the lines of the isobars, tending to flow more into the centre of a low pressure than along the direct line of the isobar. In assessing the weather, it is mainly the variations in the distance apart of the direction of the lines that are important. Closely packed lines will indicate strong winds, and when they are wide apart you can expect weaker winds. Variations in the direction of the isobars could indicate the location of a front, when you can expect a change in wind direction.

    This is covered in more detail in the chapter Local weather conditions (see here) and will certainly give you a better idea of what is going on, particularly if there is a frontal system passing through. However, it isn’t likely to give you much idea about wind strengths and the timing of changes – you need to rely on the forecast for that. You should also consider the effect of tidal flow changes – while the main effect will be on the waves, strong tides can affect the wind strength as the water flow drags the surface wind along.
