The NHC discussions usually mention the Euro model, but they always give more weight to our homegrown data. Pride and Prejudice. It is good that we do have lots of info available, and it is like sports forecasters. If you pay attention closely, you know which sources to trust. I will give Swellinfo props for giving me lots of accurate forecasts. Forecasts are by nature a prediction, and even the tide predictions can be off due to wind and other conditions. Better than nothing. I just like to keep things in proper perspective, especially when it involves breaking out the storm shutters and making hotel reservations inland.
