We are looking at the Adelaide Local Waters marine district, which says for example the wind for Thurs will be 8/13 knots until early afternoon.

Yet the chart (we have selected Adelaide Airport, but Adelaide shows the same) shows the wind starts at 7kt early thur then drops to 1kt by 16:30 Thurs.

We have noticed there always seems to be this discrepancy but can't work out why??

Also is there any significance for choosing 10knots as a point above which the wind speed colour becomes green not blue?

Cheers
Ian

Does this make any sense to anyone? I looked at the wind forecast again and the text forecast doesn't match the windspeeds on the graph? Would really appreciate some help, cheers ian
