Wind models have been consistently WRONG this year so far, under-forecasting wind. Certain spots have been windy 6 out of 7 days per week if not 7/7.
Forecast says 5-15, you can bet it is going to blow 18-20. Forecast says 10-20, get out the 7M kite. Today was a pretty good example.
It's been March conditions on the coast since late January, so it makes sense that March will be April, which means the Bay will start to get in on the goods.
There is some talk of storminess "returning" around the 17th of March, but the historical record shows no precedent for back-to-back drought January and February to turn into a wet March. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen but...
It says 10M, but it's really a 9.
