Does NOAA have any windows...


I am no expert but glad I can be of any help. And... WHOOPS!!! MY BAD...and maybe also yet another NOAA wacko thing....

The TABULAR data wind speed is in METERS per SEC. (M/s)...noted only in the small print on the page preceeding the tabular data page.

The GRAPHIC wind data is indeed, as marked on the graph, in KNOTS.

10 m/s is equal to 21.6 mph or about 19 knots.

Thank you for pointing this out, I am sorry for the confusion. And add to the confusion that the near real time front page for TPL2 has wind speed in knots.

Good thing to know!

Fair winds to you,

S/V Invictus
