    I'm a lurker and I'm damn proud of it. Most of my lurking was done around women's changing rooms at the local department stores. But I've been banned from most of those places so now my lurking is focused on the gym.

    I have a theory.. What if the National Weather Service (or some other data service) changed the API (Applications Programming Interface) to their weather models and data, and SI has not updated its software?

    I saw some changes announced on here:

    Some such as
    Regardless.. someone is asleep at the switch.

    The GFS upgrade last week was definitely one thing I considered as a possibility for the issue - but I have no idea if data is even pulled from it for the SI forecast. #graylife

    I think the ship is really going down.. before we know it the forume could go gay too... oh wait, I meant gray.

    I clicked on "Become a supporter now" and got this in reply....

    Yeah it looks like the swell data is coming through, but not the wind data.

    I think that's messing with the forecasting unicorn magic

    Pretty sure they brought Micah back as a “consultant” so not only did he sell them the website but he still gets paid to run it. He lets the mods and the fat Texan run the forum.

    I am seeing gray also. All the wind speeds are 0 miles per hour also.
