help needed to understand windguru

Postby kidsan » Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:20 am

Hi...i have been using windguru whilst out in west africa the last year and found it straightforward (if not always correct!)

However, when i now look at the forecast for Tarifa where i will be next week, there seem to be 3 forecasts, all different.

I guess i am missing something obvious?? :o

http://www.windguru.cz/int/help_index.php?sec=models - here you go

Basically WRF 9km is the most accurate usually, at least here.

i'll take your word for it as the explanation is a little scientific for me :o

such as: 'The North American Mesoscale (NAM) is a regional mesoscale model using enhanced terrain and improved parameterization of surface and precipitation processes'
:roll:

Thanks anyway, looks like i shall keep an eye on the WRF9

I agree, WRF 9 is always the most accurate in my opinion :thumb:
