Sea Temperature Anomaly explanation request
NB. I am an absolute fan of Windy.com and appreciate all the efforts and contributions of those involved.
Could someone please assist me to understand this present data and representation of Sea Temperature Anomaly, 9 August 2018:
Where may I get complete details on the source and methodology behind this data?
Many thanks, David
Data provided by NOAA NESDIS
The image shows that the sea surface temperature in the area of New Zealand is up to 4 C above normal for the day.
Comparing windy data with NOAA data
I see that windy overestimates sea temp. anomaly.
Maybe there is a bug here!
Many thanks, assuming we must calibrate back against buoy data?
Please update on any developments / corrections etc.
the sea temp. anomaly for the area of New Zealand for the 6th of Aug. 2018
is near to zero
Thank you, I will check it out.
On 22nd January MSLP Analysis for Australia shows an abiding High Pressure system hovering near New Zealand, which effectively wiped out the normal eastern Australian rainfall, by driving it towards the south of Australia..
Today (12 August) we continue to have a similarly positioned High Pressure near New Zealand, that through its natural anti-clockwise rotation, continues to act as a 'tractor system' in effectively driving out all the eastern Australian rainfall..
July Percentage of Normal Rainfall:
Actually this is July.
@gkikas-lgpz Hi, this is really bug. Thank you! We are going to look at it. Maybe we will discontinue this parameter.
