Nope, We're on Holiday.

There are no changes to SARWeather this time around, since the development team has spent the last couple of weeks extensively testing the use of SARWeather for sailing in the Adriatic.

However, we have just enabled the automatic scrubbing function already present in the system. This deletes the large weather-model output files from forecasts over 2 weeks* old and saved us several hundred gigabytes of disk space. For the user, this means that when a forecast is 2 weeks old, then the interactive map view becomes unavailable and the model output download links disappear.We'll be back soon with more substantial changes.

*The choice of 2 weeks was fairly arbitrary and may be adjusted up or down with experience.
