What is happening with ECMWS this morning? Totally wrong. GFS is correct showing 26 m/s. ECMWS shows 19.5 m/s. I am sitting in Tórshavn. The wind ís now at 10 UTC 26 m/s.
I think you are α very "strict judge" for ECMWF !
It would be "totally wrong" if it was forecasting calm.
As I see at the attached maps, the winds at your location show strong gradient
and the wind speed is rapidlly changing in a small time period.
Wind measurments from the local airport (in contrast with weather model's forecasted data) are:
03 UTC , actual 17kt gust 27kt (ECMWF: 19G32, GFS: 48G54)
06 UTC , actual 37kt gust 55kt (ECMWF: 39G68, GFS: 53G66)
09 UTC , actual 42kt gust 61kt. (ECMWF: 38G67, GFS: 52G62)
