Default What happened to NOAA Weather?

You used to be able to get a general idea but I find it's ridiculous these days. For example, right now, it is 15kts out of the S SE out of Destin and they forecast 1-2 ft seas inshore 10 miles. THIS IS A JOKE!! It is easily 3 to 4 ft seas right now with occasional 5'. Does this waste of taxpayer dollars not piss anybody else off or is it just me?? I can do better wetting my finger on my dock than paying these idiots.

NOAA Marine forecasts that list wave heights is based on the "Significant Wave Height". As a general rule, the largest individual wave one may encounter is approximately twice as high as the Significant Wave Height (or Seas).

Significant Wave Height is defined as the average of the highest one-third (33%) of waves (measured from trough to crest) that occur in a given period.



If you have the wind speed for a given expanse of water, the Beaufort Scale is helpful in estimating wave height.
