RE: Cyclonic storms near the South Pole?
You said :
« Because if it is real, I wonder why nobody ever talks about it »
Nobody talks about these storms because almost nobody is living in these latitudes. And there is almost no navigation during this season in this region.
You know that these storms are more frequent and stronger during the austral winter. It’s not a bug from weather models !
There are some famous sail races around the globe which cross these regions, but only during the austral summer. Same for the ships which bring supplies to research stations in Antarctica. Even in the good season the roaring forties and the furious fifties are very tough for sailors.
The Bureau of Meteorology of Australia (BOM) provide analysis and forecast for these regions.
The structure of these extratropical cyclones is different from the tropical cyclones. No they don’t have « a clear eye », just less wind in the center, along with other differences (core temperature, fronts system, dynamics linked to the jet stream...)
RE: Description of weather overlays
Today there is no similar strange track. I have checked one or two tracks in the North Atlantic. They seem to correspond correctly to the max. gusts predicted in the same area once during the 10 days.
A suggestion: sometime the track is due to a strong wind at day 8 or 9. For people it will be difficult to understand why they see this storm track if the strong winds are forecasted at near the end of the 10 days.
So, instead to show the wind speed in the picker, may be it would be better to show the date when the max. gust is expected ?
RE: Windy en français
You are right, all the french Caribbean islands are shown on Windy even if you have the whole Atlantic on your screen. Don’t worry with these crazy comments !
For me the only concern is the fact that the main town name appears instead of the island name, as already been discussed
RE: Windy en français
çà m'étonnerait! Les Antilles Françaises ne figurent même pas sur la Carte Windy...Résultat : impossible de situer un ouragan par rapport aux îles! Pire, alors que l'ouragan Florence balayait hier l'île de Santa Cruz das Flores aux Açores avec des vents de 120 km/h, les commentaires du gestionnaire se préoccupaient mieux des désastres à venir sur les côtes anglaises et irlandaises...Etrange vision du monde§
Windy est proposé en francais, alors pourquoi le contester! (Ou c’est juste pour le plaisir de râler ? )
Tu vis à la Guadeloupe et tu ne sais pas trouver les Antilles sur une carte de l’Atlantique?
Quand aux soi-disant « commentaires du gestionnaire », il n’y a ici aucun commentaire de l’équipe de Windy, qui fait un excellent travail et dont tu profites gratuitement, depuis plusieurs mois, sans publicité !!
