and to Ann Karin (Bergen Met Office and on extreme weather alert) re the high wind that the east coast of Norway was experiencing last weekend:
Models give waves from west up to 9-11 m Hs on the coast from Haugesund to Stad. At 12 UTC.
That is quite high, and when from west... probably devastating.....watch out for extremes! There will be a combination of swell and windwaves, and some interaction between the two can give high, extremely high waves in between.
It’s great to know that you all think of me when the weather turns rough!
Thanks for the photos and wave height chart Alistair – I’m pasting one of the photos and the chart here.
