Used to be able to find the pressure gradient in Classic iWindsurf.
Where do I find it now?

Hi stringp,

Unless that part of our network is down you should be able to find in here:

http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=218&Isection=Pressure+Report

Plus you can our the pressure gradient WindBow
http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=218&Isection=Windbow&short=1

or our pressure gradient animation:

Sorry, to be a dumb ass, but how do I get there from the app or website.
Donít want to have to go to the forum and hit tour link.

When logged into Classic iW on my desktop, I:
Go to any specific site wind plot.
Look at the menu to the left of the plot.
About halfway down, under "Map", it says "Pressure Report".
Click on it.
Violins.

You don't want to know how I access the gradients on my cell phone. Smile

Hi Stringp,

Westenders links for fine if you want a right now pressure reading.

Personally I want to see the trend of the pressure so I can see if it's going up or going down. Also, it is helpful to see if the pressure over the last few hours is following the forecast pressure or trending higher or lower. That tells me if the overall forecast is on track.

Can't get much easier than this:

1. Go to this page: http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=218&snapShotBar=snapShot

2. Then looking at the left margin click on the link saying "Pressure Report.

This will bring up the same number info. as Westenders link but also gives you graphs of each pressure gradient. The solid RED dots/line show the past and current pressure. The faded solid line gives you the forecast.

For example in the pressure graphs below the Dalles to Pasco shows a bust for the pressure forecast while the Astoria to PDX pressure forecast is perfect.

What units are the units of pressure gradient? inches of Hg, bars, psi, etc?
