Just curious which website everyone uses for quick forecasts?

I use www.windguru.com and it seems really good for what I need.

I use windguru, it very good.

I have prgrammed in custom spots for every club I visit, you just plot in the dgree of long. and lat.

You can also sycronise it to google earth, to show exactly where each spot is!

where I am - Greece - I use http://www.poseidon.ncmr.gr/weather_forecast.html - www.poseidon.ncmr.gr/weather_forecast.html

It is very good and generally reliable which is remarkable because of all the islands which make precise predictions difficult.

Beware of more sail than ballast.

AccuWeather.com is what i use, tends to be the most accurate for our neck of the woods, but then Kielder does seem to have it's own individual weather system

I use the Met Office inshore waters forecast. It's usually very accurate. UK wind map at xcweather.co.uk is very useful too. Finally, there's an online real time weather station in Shoreham, updated every 3 seconds. Invaluable, especially for the entertainment factor when it blows a gale ("Wow, look at that, it's up to F9!")

XCweather - generally good

Windguru - generally good but disagrees with XCweather

Scaling dam's weather centre and webcam - to verify which is the most accurate for a given direction.
