If you look closely, the wind
barbs are 2 flags
(50 knots each) or 2 flags
and a short (105 kts). Small display in upper right of screen
shows forecast condition a cross hairs (102 kts).
Darts represent waves and are of normal height and direction for prevailing conditions (not for the 100 kts wind
or direction). Just the wind is really whacky.
This was from GFS and everything else in that GRIB file is normal for current
conditions except this one frame.
Good news is that the normal GFS forecast shows winds abating and backing starting on Tuesday.
Normal display for Tuesday 1600 below. Crosshairs are just N of Porvenir.
