Sudden changes is swell direction on MSW forecast

Postby Chris F » Mon Jul 30, 2007 11:48 am

I have noticed how this happens sometimes and wondered why? Is this because the dominant swell for that area is all that gets shown on the report?

Look at the change from Tues to Weds for example?

Just curious. Thanks.

that forecast just shows the dominant swell (swell with the largest height), so when the s windswell has a larger height than the n groundswell that is what will be shown. the groundswell will still be there though, and shows up on spectrals etc.

We don't get no bleeding spectrals.

Makes sense, what I thought.

ATTMFKH, I might be if you are?
