Non-Gale WindSat Case off NW California – Mel Nordquist

As contrasted with the October 31 WindSat case (posted here last week), wind is light out of the south as indicated in the first figure from WindSat. We only have one moving marine observation in the hour before the pass for comparison shown in the second figure. These images would have been overlaid but for the one hour difference.

[We’re hoping to show/document the usefulness of WindSat data in many different forecasting situations and geographic areas.  – Matt Smith]

WindSat pass at 15Z
