Obtaining accurate results from wave models in coastal regions is typically more difficult. This is due to the complex interactions between waves and the local environment
As of 2021, the ECMWF's weather model is generally considered to be the most accurate weather forecasting mode and is arguably the best weather model on the planet.
It is thought that the distinct gradients visible in some of the wave parameters are function of the tides' phase and the mean wave direction.
