Ever wanted to go back in time and look at storms of the past? Buoyweather members have access to past marine weather events via our historical charting system. Historical charts of wind speed and direction, significant wave height, and peak wave period are available for any point over the ocean. This is yet another unique feature on Buoyweather and the charts are dynamically created to your exact specifications. They can be centered anywhere in the world, zoomed in or out, and you choose the date.

We have over 15 years of these historical charts that can be viewed over any are of the ocean. Knowing historical marine weather can be the key to forecasting the future. You can compare previous storms where the outcome is recorded with what you see in our current forecast charts. This provides valuable insight. Accessing historical data in this easy to use interface will be tough to find anywhere else.

There are three ways to get into the chart system. Some links are provided below to help you get started. If you know the approximate latitude and longitude where you want the charts centered, you can use the form below the links. You can also visit a forecast point from one of the regions above. From the forecast point, there is a tab on the left "VB CENTERED CHARTS" and you will see the historical chart option.
