RE: Windy brings new Waves-radar and additional isolines
Bug Report - URL Format for automatically placing markers no longer works
I wrote a routine that automatically generates a windy view from a lat lon, zooming into a certain area and automatically places a marker at the location. With the latest update, the previously supported method of:
no longer functions. The map zooms in to the correct coordinates, and with the correct zoom level, but a marker is not displayed.
The only way I can get a marker to display is if I use the URL to open up the forecast panel, which I'd like to avoid.
RE: Why is Wind speed in hurricanes so wrong?
@Siff Where do you get the real data from for everywhere on the planet? It's easy to say you have real data in somewhere like the USA, which is covered by hundreds of observation points, along with upper air measurements taken twice daily. What about everywhere else?
How do you verify a forecast for a location which there is no credible observation data? Remote sensing can help, but it only goes so far.
