If you are sailing in U.S. waters. I really like a site called L-36.com. Fellow has put together a free customizable site where you can setup the information based on your needs. Even has a helpful You Tube video to get you started which you can see here:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: JUST THINKING ABOUT THE WEATHER
It also works well on my Blackberry. Probably on I Phones and Android too. I use it to get the latest weather bouy info while I am at the helm. Very handy not having to leave the helm to get the latest forecasts and bouy information without firing up the computer down below.

Re: Weather Help

Wunderground has severe wx page, NOAA has plenty of goodies for offshore, windfinder, windguru have grib data translated into everyday language and graphics.

NOAA and wunderground have sat while windfinder has spot reports.

Gribus gives you access to gribbed data for area of your choice.

Much depends on what events you want to track and why.

Cheers,
b.
