How is it done?
For example, Florence is in the middle of the Atlantic right now. How would one forecast when and if any waves will arrive in the north east? How big might they be? How fast do waves travel in the open ocean? Florence is moving west at 15 mph and has winds of 35mph what can we predict from this info.
How much fetch is needed? How much do waves dissipate along the way?
Really I’m looking for general knowledge on the topic… TSs and Hurricanes makes waves, what are other systems too look out for?
Do you use any tricks or rules of thumb to estimate this kind of stuff? If a storm is in the middle of the Atlantic it takes roughly 5 days to send waves.. stuff like that.
