Passage Weather Site:
PassageWeather was developed out of the need for reliable, easy to use weather information and forecasts.
We provide 7-day Wind, Wave and Weather Forecasts to help sailors with their passage planning and weather routing.
Both before and during deliveries, ocean races, regattas, cruises and all other types of offshore passages, we have your whole route covered.
Our forecast charts are created using weather data provided by the US National Weather Service (NWS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), the Marine Meteorology Division of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Sailing Weather Service (SWS) and the Cyprus Oceanography Center.
Our worldwide Surface Wind (10m above sea level), Surface Pressure, Visibility, Cloud Cover andPrecipitation forecast charts are derived from the 0.5 degree GFS (Global Forecast System) model, one of the operational forecast models run at NCEP. The GFS model is run four times daily, with forecast output to 180 hours (7.5 days).
For North America, we create higher-resolution Surface Wind (10m above sea level) charts using data from the 12 km (~0.12 degree) NAM (North American Mesoscale) model. This model, an NCEP implementation of the WRF-NMM model, is run 4 times a day, with forecast output to 84 hours (3.5 days).
