Knots vs miles per hr / temperature map

Regarding the wind gust map - as it is in knots - is this the same as mph

Its just that all media forecasts mention wind speeds mph - knots is more to do with boat and ship speed - so it would be good if this reflected these units

I guess the temp profile map is in degrees celsius - correct ?

    Hi, could you link to the map you mean about please?  The GFS/NMM charts are in mph, and all temperatures are celsius, except if you select to view the actual forecasts themselves in fahrenheit.

    For many years, it has been a problem attracting bright young people into science, technology and maths. And it cannot surprise, when we have SI units, that the young shake their heads at knots, mph, and dare I say it, Hpa.

     

    Let's (k)not throw the baby out with the bathwater, but for heaven's sake, SI units really are superior to Imperial. I thought we had done away with old units ages ago.

    Knots at sea .Conversion charts are available to print off or bookmark a site.  I use a chart showing 1-8 km/h in 1 column then 13- 20 in the other column on one A4 sheet. 

     

    www.docstoc.com Then type in Wind speed.
