To ballpark a CdA…
I know my average power: Go to a course where the average power is known. Enter into your forecast the average power for your ride. Adjust the CdA to reflect the average speed you attained for this power. A lower CdA will increase your average speed and a higher with decrease average speed. Tip: If you have Premium access enter into the Date Picker the time you attained the average speed at wattage on the course.

To have the most accurate forecast it is important to take care in entering the correct Performance Options. Key inputs are Average Watts, CdA and Weight.
Incorrect elevation data may also cause your forecast speed to be incorrect.
The reported observed weather relies on the timely reporting by local weather stations. In many locations this is close to real time however in some locations this can take anywhere from a few hours up to two weeks.
You may notice during this time large changes in your ride statistics as the new data is received. It is also common to see lower than expected estimated wind speeds during this time.
In most locations observed weather is unchanged after 3-4 days. For the most accurate CdA estimate please wait at least this time.
