RE: Why is Wind speed in hurricanes so wrong?
We rely on Windy and a couple of other sites for our forecasting. We are sailors in the Caribbean but also used the site for sailing along the coastal USA. We are not meteorologists, we are not computer geeks. We just need factual information to plan our routes which can be 3-5 days. And, factual information so we can run from storms. While I understand most of what is being written, the average person who is trying to use the site for daily forecasting could use some simplified help and data. The site is awesome and is our go-to but it can be confusing for the average person. I have been using the site for three years and still am learning how to use it. I thing that is too long of a curve. And, we do rely heavily on the winds being correct--I had no idea until I read the above that they are averages as I too wondered about the winds in Irma. Is there a tutorial for dummies? If not, could you consider adding one? Thank you.
Temp in Caribbean
The temperatures displayed for most of the Caribbean islands has been a bit off all spring and summer. Example: The past week has shown temps around 82 degrees in Grenada but it is actually 87-90 degrees most days. Not sure how the info is derived but it is not quite correct.
