Hey outdoor fans!
No matter of the outdoor activity you do, it is good to know, that the weather forecast depth may be from 1 to 10 days. The longest forecast provides not every weather model, but just a few ones. Among 10 models used in Windy.app three of them with 10 days weather forecasts: ECMWF and GFS27 / GFS+. Briefly learn about it:
- ECMWF is a global model by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts. Considered #1 global weather model in the world. It is the best for precipitation and cloudiness. Resolution — 14 km. Updates every 12 hours.
- GFS27 / GFS+ are also a global models from the US Global Forecast System, originally created for aviation. Updated 4 times a day. GFS27 has such a name because it interpolates data for every dot within a 27 km x 27 km square, and the GFS+ always shows only the maximum result in each square.
You can use both models for your windsports and other outdoor activities.
