Buoyweather, the popular marine forecasting website and mobile application, has expanded its weather modeling to include 16-day wind and swell forecasts, and tide charts for any point offshore, on any ocean. Buoyweather has also added air temperature, barometric pressure, sky conditions, precipitation, sunrise/sunset times and a moon calendar. This service includes Canadian coverage.

Buoyweather’s new forecast model extends those important features to include 16 days of coverage. However, long-time users who prefer the 7-day model they’ve always trusted can still access it by toggling between the two weather models right on the forecast page. Existing Buoyweather subscribers will not have to reset their ‘Favorites,’ or those areas where they routinely check weather. To get the latest mobile version will require an app update.

The 7-day and 16-day forecasts are derived from NOAAs Wavewatch III wave model and the 16-day introduces Buoyweather’s proprietary LOLA model. Buoyweather uses both models to produce a written forecast for any lat/lon, along with wind and wave graphs in 6-hour increments. 

“Buoyweather engineers and data scientists are continually improving the modeling to provide more weather data and give users choices to help them plan their trips and stay out of bad weather,” says product lead Ben Holtzclaw. “We’ve received very positive feedback on the new 16-day weather forecasts from our users all around the world.”
