Weather predictions for people who live on the water
Turks and Caicos Islands Weather
How this site works:
Locations sorted from smallest waves to largest
- The weather predictions are no older than one hour. When you load the location prediction page, the web site checks to see how old the current charts are, and if they are older than one hour it will request all new information and re-draw all the graphs. This may change to a longer time as the site grows.
- There are many sources used for the predictions like NOAA and many others. I take all the predictions I can gather, average them together, and use that information to produce the location predictions.
- The locations are all in the water. The names for the locations vary and can be nautical locations, dive sites, or the closest land area. Click the link to the Google Map on the top of the prediction page and you will be taken to the exact location on Google Maps.
- This site is a work in progress, although it's working so you're welcome to use it. If something doesn't work, I'm probably working on something, so just try again in a few minutes.
- Requests for new locations can be emailed to me at email@example.com
May 12, 2021: Old maps from the 1960's of the Turks and Caicos have been found, converted, and uploaded here
April 25, 2021: Map of locations pinned and linked to weather pages.
April 24, 2021: Set up a comparison page to sort locations by their daily wave height. Started the interactive map work.
April 15, 2021: Added the tide heights. Oddly they seem lower than what other sources are predicting. I've reached out to the feed source to see if there is a reason why.
April 14, 2021: The web page addresses have changed. All locations now use the same base Perl code to generate the predictions. This will make adding more locations easy.
April 12, 2021: I started this site. It pulls in data from different sources and averages them to come up with the charts and graphs for the weather predictions. Just a little side project I started so I know when it's best to take the kayak out to the deep water fishing. Others requested the same information, so the project is growing. Hope it helps you too.
