To swellinfo admin HERE WE GO AGAIN
Again...Almost Every single forecast, there is more of a westerly component of that actual swell than what is forecasted.
If you do verification with station 44097 you will see this.
Currently a 226 degree swell(due sw) when it's forecast to be SSE at 10pm
If the forecast says a S swell....it's either SSW or SW On the block island buoy.
If the forecast says SW swell....It's WSW.
It's like clockwork. THere's a south bias on the models. I've seen this year after year during the summer on south swell events.
Again NOT a knock on this site. It's a great site. Just something I notice with the models.
