Arome forecast accuracy
Not sure If anyone noticed but to me it seems the French forecast model Arome is lately becoming less and less accurate. I used to rely on it the most both for sailing and day to day use, but it gives weird predictions lately (especially when compared to the efficiency that for example ECMWF has compared to reality). Do you think it’s mostly because of the lack of data from airplanes, that just don’t fly as often during the coronavirus as they used to? Or do you probably have a better explanation?
I have not noticed such wrong forecasts with AROME. I guess you are mostly interested by the wind if you are sailing.
Select Reported wind to show weather stations near your location and click one of them. You get the comparison of AROME forecasts with the local reported wind and temperature.
This is the best way to compare and choose the best model for your area.
