Departure Planning 4 © Predictwind.com

With advanced weather technology, there is no reason to get caught out in unfavorable weather conditions. PredictWind introduced the first online Departure Planning tool over a decade ago and now with new updates, it's even more effective at finding the best weather window for departure.

Using the power of PredictWind's Weather Routing, the Departure Planning tool compares four departure dates and associated weather conditions to enable you to make the best departure decision. A PredictWind weather route performs an incredible one billion calculations to remove all the "guesswork", of "when and where" you will encounter the next weather system. By examining the four departure dates or times, and the four models, Departure Planning performs 16 billion calculations in the PredictWind cloud. This data is then summarised to ensure that selecting your departure date is both easy and stress-free.

Departure Planning has been upgraded with the following features:

  • Previously you could only compare two weather models at once, but now you can compare four models. This gives you double the confidence in your decision-making process.
  • You can now select which forecast models to use in the departure plan. We recommend our top-performing long-range forecast models are used as the default selection.
  • The updated user interface allows you to summarise each departure date with an average of the four models, or alternatively, drill into the detail by comparing the four models on each departure date.

Make planning your next offshore or coastal trip a breeze with the PredictWind Departure Planning tool.

Departure Planning is available on the PredictWind Forecast Website, PredictWind App or the Offshore App.
