Again the sustained winds are usually pretty close, so we are confused why the GUST data would only be off...puzzling.
I understand you feel like I am bashing etc. I am not. I love your site. I am just reporting that the models or converstion or something that you use are very, very high for gust data compared to NWS and NOAA that we use. The sustained match ours well, so we know something is coordinating well. That is what I am asking you to review...is there an issue with your gust data...please compare as I mentioned. You will see big differences in GUSTS at a given time and day to NWS/NOAA, while the sustained match up pretty well.
No, I don't think that you are bashing, I think that you do not fully understand how Windy works (see my above post).
Also you need to provide more concrete data for comparison, otherwise we are not comparing apples with apples. Please add screenshots with ALL references, time points, sources, etc.
Eg: Raw GFS data from your side vs the GFS data displayed on Windy. NB: other 'Forecasts' from other sources, even if GFS based, can also still be different if this source is adding some of their own manipulations as well.
And finally of course, all of this will still only be Forecasts, so it will still not be clear who is "right".
I will mention it to the Windy team and see if they are aware of any specific issues, but I suspect not.
I suspect that this is just simply the result of different Models (and even individual Meteorologists / Forecasters such as your custom forecast) giving different results.
Hope this helps :)
