Title says it all. Amount sort of works (after currency conversion). But I want to be sure.
RE: Where is the forecast time ("timestamp"?) for model updates?
Thanks! Funny thing is I have stumbled upon that before (but I picked myself up and wandered off as if nothing had happened...)
Where is the forecast time ("timestamp"?) for model updates?
This may be too simplistic. I don't know.
Where do I find the timestamp for when the ECMWF forecast data was updated and/or incorporated into Windy?
RE: Minimal pressure at centre of intense low (Dorian). NOAA:916mbar; Windy:956mbar (MOD EDIT: Actual data vs Forecast data?)
I get the difference. Yet, Windy never (it seems) shows the minimum to be as low as the actuals. It should at least make a mistake in that sense from time to time...
Minimal pressure at centre of intense low (Dorian). NOAA:916mbar; Windy:956mbar (MOD EDIT: Actual data vs Forecast data?)
Dorian is currently (as of this writing) reported as 916 mbar ("Minimum central pressure") by NOAA.
But on Windy, the centre is shown as 956 mbar. (Or a near to centre isobar?).
Is there a reason for the mismatch? Can this be improved? Windy intense lows are consistently reporting higher than 'official' source actual minimal lows.
