PRECISION WEATHER and OCEAN FORECASTS ~ theyr.com
What is it and why use it?
Precision weather is our high-resolution data.
- 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
