The prediction is truly monstrous

Today, Tuesday 27 October 2020, a monstrous forecast is expected. We are talking about waves predicted from 15 meters of the ECMWF WAM 3 model to the forecast of 18 meters with a period of 15 seconds, of the WaveWatch model. That’s not the only monstrous forecast, there is also a cyclone east of Cambodia and Vietnam predicted with winds at 117 knots.

Strong winds

Winds reaching more than 70 knots, with peaks of 80 knots. I would not want to be in the middle of the sea in that situation even though there are now many commercial ships in the perimeter of the storm.

So much so that there is a bubble in ship traffic right there, as can be seen from MarineTraffic.com

Infra + satellite image

The satellite images are really worrying, they give -37 ° centigrade, most likely due to the force of the winds.

Stephen A. Kleckner

My name is Stephen Augustus Kleckner and I am a boy born in Riccione but raised in Genoa, Italy and around the world as a parcel. I traveled a lot when I was little so I immediately had a very different vision of the world from my schoolmates and friends. I love sailing and sailing, I have circumnavigated Italy 31 times by sailing and done more than 45,000 miles by boat. I love the sea: I can't do without it, I also like mountain walks. I am a very curious person and I like to understand how things work. I am passionate about physics, so much so that I enrolled in university and devour every documentation that passes under my hand. I am also a collector of stamps and LEGO. I have a vintage MINI Morris from 1964. I am a computer systems engineer and analyst. I was a founding member of RICCIONE TV, but unfortunately I made the wrong partners. I love Star Trek and I think we are on a franklin of matter shooting in a dark galaxy, so we should be much more united and law-abiding and respect each other as a species, instead of wars among ourselves. I don't like extremism and fake news.
