Back at ya HH, and same to all of youse.
Yes .. It makes sense that the wind data is crucial to the green/blue/red (clean/fair/choppe) determination, and thus missing wind data is defaulting to "grey". A quick survey of other locations (i.e., NJ, VA) has different swell levels, data. The "SWELL" button graphs (vice "SURF") look like they have some data, but can't vouch to whether this data is complete...

Digging further into the product service bulletin SCN19-40, which went into effect June 12(https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/scn19-40gfs_v15_1.pdf), I noticed the following text, which in summary is implying a change to the directory (folder) structure and file naming convention of the data products, which would require end-users to update their software that retrieves and uses the data:
2) Changes to Product Output on Web Services
With this upgrade the following changes occur on either the NCEP web services: https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/ ftp://ftpprd.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/
Or on the NWS Web services: https://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.opnl/ ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.opnl/
A) Changes to directory structures on the NCEP Web services
- blah blah blah… I'll spare you the gibberish and geekery .. the swell code maintainers can look at referenced bulletin
B) Changes to the Output File Names on the NCEP Web Services
- blah blah blah… Again, I'll spare you the gibberish and geekery .. ..
So adnim …
Looks like that New Zealand dude who wore the orange wetsuit, water polo bonnet and built/rode those $$$ 20ft(?) wood boards

Yes, yes.. given the current state of the forecast he'd have a topic for the moaning chair.
That was my first thought
Maybe some of you only have a few options for surf forecast where you live but if you actually used this site as your main forecasting tool I'm guessing your wave count is pretty low. No offense but this site is the very worst for an accurate report. I'm also not a fan of Surfline but will check it from time to time just for the wind. Magicseaweed is good for a video or pictures but they're always, and I mean always, about 3 or 4 hrs ahead of schedule (meaning what they have reported for 10a will always be the conditions at 6:30a) I use to think surf-forecast was kinda weak but I've come around to thinking they're the second most accurate (and definitely easiest to read) only to Buoyweather. If they all show something a little different I'll roll with Buoyweather every time. I only come here for the health advice.
Correct me if I'm incorrect, but surfline/buoyweather are the same company and use the same data, no?
The bouy will set you free...
Same issue, grey
Its fukn gray here, must be spreading E to W
Happy Anniversary HH!!
I never used this as my main forecasting tool, i always checked buoy and checked wind forecasts from multiple sources. But this site has always been EXTREMELY accurate for my local. Swell wise atleast. Didn't use it as my main tool, my eyes are my main tool. But if i had to use one i think this site would of been my main tool.
This is all beyond my comprehension but i think certain locales are easier to forecast than others. Or are atleast more accurate than others
i think that arrangement is over
Yeah, seems that way...
