NOAA weather has been a puzzler lately in PWS; they canít seem to get it together. Last weekend things looked good right up until Friday morning, this is understandable but then the weather seemed to moderate 24 hours later but too late for us.
This weekend it was even more confusing in that their predictions changed course dramatically every 12 hours. Friday morning 2 foot seas until Sunday than building to 3 foot, we were ready to go. Friday night their prediction changed to 4 foot seas for Saturday and Sunday, same thing Saturday morning when we planned on going out. Today (Sunday) itís now 2 feet or less, what gives???
I have to wonder if NOAA just takes a brake or is short staffed this time of year because they really donít seem to have it together weather wise.
I look at buoy data and web cams along with current NOAA weather; I just think they could do a better job given the current technology available.
