Surf forecast model not updating (April 2022)
Same issue again?
Yeah, the ex-TC Fili swell is entirely gone from the sunny coast forecast. 1ft from the SSE apparently :D
Thanks for the transparency. I see the models have successfully undergone another update. From what day onward would you consider to be accurate for swell?
When will it be fixed?
Hi Ben, Do you know if the SA yorke peninsula forecast has updated to be correct currently or is the model still faulty? if so could you give a quick summary of the next few days? im tossing up doing a trip there over Easter or staying in Torquay
The SA forecaster notes have all the gold Strider. https://www.swellnet.com/reports/australia/south-australia/middleton/for...
looks like its very wrong for the indonesia area still.....
Yep, owing to swells being generated some 5-7 days in the past and those not being in the data.
Hey team, hope you’re all having a great Easter
Your SEQLD & NNSW report states;
This is expected to generate a sustained period of large, and sometimes wind affected southerly swells from Thursday onwards - favouring Northern NSW with the most size - holding through the weekend and the first half of the following week.
Are the long range charts / modelling still not resolving properly? They are calling a drop of in swell Friday and through the days following. Going to be in the hood just working out whether I need to organise a car or not :)
Are these long term swell graphs fixed?
Indo charts seem to have regressed again this arvo, checked this morning and they were looking correct and then this arvo looking off again?
Same problem again?
Model issue again?
Yep, stopped yesterday afternoon with a few issues on the NCEP servers. Hopefully fixed by this afternoon/evening.
The forecast seems to have been broken for the last few years down here anyway. Maybe once its back up there'll be something to look forward too.
Just a quick heads up - our primary data supplier for the wave model (NOAA) has been experiencing tech issues over the last few days, so our wave model hasn't updated for a few cycles.
Latest update from NOAA is: "We have a team dedicated still to resolve all of the remaining issues with access, and apologize for the disruption. Thank you for your patience while we work to fully restore our systems".
At the moment the outage doesn't seem to have greatly affected our computer generated forecasts though we'll keep an eye on this and update accordingly (as always, the Forecaster Notes and its associated comment section will contain the latest and most up to date information).
Apologies for any inconvenience.
