Tim Dick of the Lagoon 42 Malolo just notified us that there is no coastal weather data being fed to WX forecasts indefinitely. At this point, there’s no known cause. Maybe a catastrophic crash or a cyber attack or?
The National Data Buoy Center site said, “On 03/09/2021 the NDBC primary processing servers were shut off due to a facilities issue. Station pages on the NDBC website are not updating and there is no ETR at this time. We will update this banner as we learn more.”
Fortunately, from where we sit right now it’s a beautiful day but, for those currently voyaging, this could be a concern.
