High resolution GRIBs freely available for Mediterranean

The University of Athens, Department of Physics, Atmospheric Modelling and Weather Forecasting Group has provided access to the output of their SKIRON forecast model. The compiled GRIB files are available for free download at wild-silk.org. A site that supports free and open weather resources for leisure sailors in the Mediterranean.

The files have a resolution of 0.1 deg. compared to 0.5 deg. for GFS gribs. This is 25 time higher than the GFS gribs. The SKIRON model covers the entire Mediterranean. It is a local model that well reflects local weather effects. This makes it suitable for sailing forecasts in the Med both coastal and off-shore. The well known weather pages of the University of Athens are based on the outputs of the SKIRON model.

The downloaded GRIB files can be viewed in zyGrib (ver. 6.2.4 and up) or in OpenCPN with the Grib plugin.

The attached image shows the coverage of the GRIB files.

Maybe this site use the same GRIBs to visualize its wind forecast

Marine.Travel - Mediterranean

Try to zoom for more detailed/higher resolution wind forecast.
