  • | Premium

    Hi everyone, sorry for my #french-english ... Did i miss something or do wrong setting on the windy website or app, bur i'm pretty sure that from ago, we can chose the MFWAM model to preview waves and now i only see the ECMWF, i'm nor sure it is the same Precision (wrong ? ) in france we can get the MFMWF on a french android / iphone app callad "surf factor" but the visual is not the same than windy, why does the MFWAM model seems to be change by ECMWF ?
    Thank you for help me or explain if i'm wrong .... best regard JEFF

    Hi, I have been using Windy for only one year but I doubt that the MFWAM model has been used here.
    This model is similar to the ECMWF WAM model but is forced by the wind from the AROME or ARPEGE models. These models are not implemented on Windy, so it seems difficult to use MFWAM here. Logically the wave model from ECMWF has been chosen and is forced by the wind forecasted by ECMWF.
    (Pas besoin d’explications en français?)
