Since it's a new buoy thread...any chance you could add AUGU2 (Augustine Island), AMAA2 (East Amatuli Island Light), HMRA2 (Kachemak Bay Reserve), and FILA2 (Flat Island Light) to generate a forecast for Kachemak Bay, Homer, AK?
Its pretty cool to look at the nearshore coastal buoys as compared to 44009.
For example, right now 44009 has a swell of 5.9 @ 14.
The Bethany Buoy shows 3.3 @ 13, and the Ocean City buoy shows 3.9 @ 15.
It is nice to note the Swell Info forecast is right on target as compared to the nearshore buoys.
A lot of times, people consider one specific buoy, many miles off the coast as what is going on at the beach. The example today, says a lot, since 44009 is 20 miles off the coast. The swell is not as strong by the time it reaches the coast.
