    This is a common error, and I think you can change this in your defaults if you have an account. Windy is developed by a Czech team, so of course they default to European standards. This is what our poor European brethren experience when they get American-centric software 8^)

    So Monday at this point does not look like a SW wind wave day, sorry!
