    Ryan,

    My precise data "forecast" system called GF (Gut Feel) is a wee bit lower than these guys. I am going with 42 MPH.

    No you're right on. But there is no downside for being wrong in this case.

    I just did the 6 hourly synoptic observation and coded a "0000" for the wind. This means the 10 minute average wind speed leading up to the observation was less than 0.5 knots. In fact, it was 0.3 knots.

    How many times have you coded that before?

    When I glanced at the weather home page this morning I saw the 152 (which was the wind direction) and thought holy cow - it really is blowing up there! I then noticed that the actual speed was 6.8mph (which seemed just about as unlikely). Looks like the expectations for this wind contest were a bit "overblown"

    I appreciate your ethusiasm for the weather...you are unfortunately 'competing' against a bunch of folks who have gone to school to study this stuff...

    Keep at it..

    and heck...I missed It by 30mph as well...
