meteoblue issue: Charleston, SC: Dorian

The date today is 2019-09-04. Comparing model outputs using the compare tool, I notice that all of the models widely agree on maximum wind speeds and timing for Dorian effects in Charleston, SC. See: https://www.windy.com/multimodel/32.790/-79.940?32.262,-79.940,8 .
This is with the glaring exception of the 'meteoblue' model, which has predicted 1/2 of the wind speed of the other models and very different timing. When I go on the meteoblue web site and look at their 'meteogram' for Charleston (https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/forecast/meteograms/charleston_united-states-of-america_4574324), the values there do agree with the other models and do not match with what is presented on Windy.com. So...I'm wondering if there is some disconnect here. Perhaps there is a geo-registration issue for the model on Windy? It is wildly off by my estimation.
Windy provides Meteoblue's local model (NEMS) that covers only Europe.
If you click to the wind field
the only available data are from NAM, ECMWF and GFS models.
Funny thing is meteoblue seems to be the only accurate one with current temps and wind speeds
Yes, but ... what are the current wind speeds?
As I see for now (5 Sep/ 7Z),
wx. stations in the area report wind speeds ranging from 4 to 31 kts !!!
As Dorian is moving north, what model forecasted better the situation in your area?
I saw wind reports (from airport) 45 kts gusts 60 kts (50 gust 70 mph).
