Offshore Passages


PredictWind can provide a 14 day marine forecast using the 50km resolution model for any region in the world. When offshore and away from land effects, it is not necessary to get a high resolution forecast. However you can be assured to get the best forecast available using the same technology that is used to generate the high resolution forecasts.
 
The reduced smoothing in PredictWind’s weather model you will allow you to see wind features that are not picked up by other weather models. In addition we use two data sources for the weather model, to produce dual forecasts for comparison. The closer the wind forecasts, the more confidence you can have in the accuracy for your comfort and safety.
