Good weather for wind farming - if you are a fan of renewable energy then this week marks a week where more clean, green, fuel free energy has been delivered to the National Grid than ever before. Move over Nigel Farage this is marvellous news. I think the record will be broken again on Thursday when the next bout of strong winds cross the country. The forecast was 100% spot on earlier in the week too, lets hope the same can be said on Thursday.

There's been some good sessions over the weekend and some of the nooks and crannies have been pumping, and will continue to pump through the week (as soon as you don't mind wind of course). The pattern will change over the weekend as the big upper trough out to the west of the UK fills in and moves east. There might be a slot on Saturday with offshore winds but otherwise it's the nooks and crannies who'll be delivering.

As you can see, there is quite a difference in the surface wind forecasters for Saturday - the top one is usually the most reliable and most favorable so fingers crossed. There'll be 3-4 foot swell tucked in underneath the wind so if it does go offshore, then party time. (i'd give it a 30% change at this stage)

  1. Well your forecast was not 100% right! Wind purring in from the south or as I said howling at 35mph?
