summary and detail difference.

i have found that the summary can say for instance westerly winds,
however when looking at the detail page there is not a single point when the wind is actually westerly.
the summary for eg says westerly wind x swell and say 4 stars full colour.
when the detail is alot different in the wind dept.
i dont know if you are aware of this.
i also dont know what to expect in terms of wind direction.
is the summary just wrong????

Its a generalisation of the days conditions (eg if its northwest int he mornign and southwest in the avo the whole day summery is going to average out as being west winds....

Just look at the deatail..!
With 73% of the planet under water perhaps Earth should be re-named Ocean
