Contact: High resolution Superforecast for Egypt

Postby j0nes » Fri Feb 20, 2009 2:19 pm


we developed a new high resolution weather forecast model for Egypt! Forecast area is basically the whole Red Sea as you can see in the map:


The area covered by the new Superforecast model reaches from the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba in the North over the area around Hurghada and El Gouna down south to the Marsa Alam region. You can see those maps on our Superforecast Egypt map overview page.
Popular kite- and windsurfing locations in those areas include Hurghada, El Gouna, Dahab, Zaafarana, El Naaba / Marsa Alam and many many more. On all spots in this area, the new Superforecast is automatically available.

The Superforecast for Egypt uses the latest version of our Superforecast weather model with all improvements since its introduction last year. The main model horizontal resolution is 7km, which makes the Superforecast probably the weather model with the highest resolution for this area. The underlying topography model even uses a horizontal grid of 1km resolution! Forecast values are updated four times a day at about 4, 10, 16 and 22 o'clock UTC.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, don't hesitate to contact us at jonas -- at --!
