Predicting the wind is probably the most difficult task a meteorologist faces. The National Weather Service will not release a forecast out side of 2 1/2 days with wind speeds & directions. Bottom line is they are INACCURATE, so don’t rely on them…
When it comes to calling predators the wind is a HUGE issue. On windy days coyotes & bobcats shrink their response zones to almost nothing. Over the years we have started using the National Weather Services Wind Prediction Model to help us decide on a location to go call.
These models will give you the wind direction & an idea on areas that may see less wind, even when the general forecast calls for wind advisories like today.
You can find a link to the Wind Models on right hand side of our blog. It can be used anywhere in the Untied States & we hope it helps you hunt HARDER & SMARTER!
