Northeast Monsoon Outlook
Jeremy Davis, Operations Manager

On 16 September, WRI presented a webinar on the outlook for the upcoming Northeast Monsoon Season in the Arabian Sea and environs.

We discussed how the Northeast Monsoon evolves over time and its various effects across the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, and the Arabian Sea.  We highlighted areas that often experience rough conditions, such as funneling SE’ly winds through Bab el Mandeb. The tracks and frequency of tropical cyclones during the fall transitional season were shown. Mitigation strategies to minimize high conditions, such as finding the best weather window for departure from Suez, speed reductions, and coastal routing in the Red Sea were explained.

In addition, we presented a SeaWeather.net demonstration to show the current status of the Southwest Monsoon as it starts to transition into the Northeast Monsoon.

SeaWeather Fishing Planner Update
Alex Avalos, Senior Meteorologist/Fishing Specialist

We continue to make upgrades to the SeaWeather Fishing Planner to provide more tools to help anglers find the species they seek. The addition of sea mounts, coupled with already existing knowledge of hot-spots, will help you find the fish you want.

•    To access these sea mount locations, log onto SeaWeather.net and select the “Fishing Planner” dropdown on the top-left of the screen.
•    A table with two tabs will appear, the tab at the top left will say “Fishing Planner” while the tab at the top right will say “Options.”
•    You will then see the sea mounts populate onto the voyage map in a fluorescent pink color. Upon clicking on the sea mounts themselves, the name and the location will appear. See image 1.

Our mission at Weather Routing is to ensure that anglers have as much information as feasible to best assist their needs with any fishing trips that they may be undertaking. As always, we are available to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with any inquiries you may have.
