What is it and why use it?

Precision weather is our high-resolution data.

Advantages:

  • Precise voyage planning
  • Safety at sea
  • Racing advantage

We think every mariner should use high-resolution weather forecasts, it’s a critical aspect of safety at sea and it’s not just for the professionals.

We produce our forecasts using the WRF/NMM, the very same model used by the U.S. met office, NOAA, to produce their high resolution data over the U.S.

Coverage (Spatial)

A lot can happen within a 10,000 square kilometre area, i.e. a one-degree grid.

Let’s take a typical 1.0-degree forecast; this produces one data point for every one hundred-kilometre grid, and then interpolates between the points.

Our 0.04-degree data produces 625 data points and interpolates between those providing a much more detailed and accurate picture of the weather zoomed in, especially over complex terrain or coastal regions.

That’s quite a simple overview of this science and if you would like more detailed information about the model and its output please contact us at support@theyr.com

Time steps (Temporal)

A lot can happen in three hours where weather is concerned.

Most weather forecast products rely on a three-hour time step or even six hours.

These can provide a good overview of the weather but it’s not precise.

Our high-resolution data is produced on an hourly basis, providing a more accurate picture of the weather over a given period.

High resolution vs Low resolution

The differences in the scale, timing and nuances of a weather event can be clearly seen in the high resolution data images below compared to the low resolution.
