iGetwind forecasts now with waves

Postby laf1greg » Thu Jul 26, 2018 7:23 pm

Hi guys I posted a while ago about a wind forecast web app I'm workin on. https://igetwind.com Now I've included the wave forecasts into
the wind graph. Also for those of you in europe you get COSMO 2.2km for France/Germany and countries around. And you still got wind/waves/tides all around the world and display all your favorite forecasts in one page. I invite you to give it a try! https://igetwind.com

Here is an example about a very wavy location in Peru :

Hi Guys,
quick update : iGetwind is now showing 3 data for waves : wind swell, swell 1 and swell 2. I found it to be a lot more precise like that. Also for those of you in Europe, there is now Arome 1km model, it's a high resolution model from Meteo France. Really good forecast for short term.

By the way you can click on the map on any coast worlwide to get wind/waves/tide forecasts.

Igetwind is a wind/waves/tides web app I've built, you can add multiple forecasts on your page and compare different models. Give it a try you will love it !

Pretty sweet...with all the forecast apps, why are there so many forecast models and which one should we use? Thanks for your hard work.

Thanks for your question beebad. Are you in Europe or in north America ?

First there is some models better for short term forecast (high resolution) which you will consult for the next 1-2-3 days and some better for long term forecast (low resolution) up to 10 days to get the big picture. more info here : https://igetwind.com/doc/

Usually you will get a good knowledge of a particular model after comparing what it says and what kind of wind you actually experienced at the beach. You could found that a particular model work better on some location. Also you can compare different models that are coming from different authorities (in north america you get NAM3km NOAA VS LAM canada weather agency, europe you will get AROME1km meteo france VS ICON-EU Germany weather agency).

By comparing models you can validate better a particular forecast, if models don't agree then there is less chance prediction is good.

Also in north america you have HRRR wich is updated hourly, I found it good to see if if a forecast is inflating or deflating by comparing the different updates.

Fell free if you have other questions.
