Re: Best weather sites?

Well, depends on what you mean by weather sites. If you mean weather info in general and particular then perhaps various university and government agencies are the place to go. I like UCAR a lot.

If you mean weather data and forecast then again I would recommend govt agencies. I found NOAA info excellent for the W Atlantic, Norwegian Met Office excellent for the Nordic, etc.. And, again, universities - e.g. Victoria gives good forecast for the S Pacific and the Islands, etc..

Re: Best weather sites?

I love this Cruisers Forum! What a timely question. I am heading to the Leeward islands for 2 weeks. Was looking for some sites with good forcasts for sailing and the big picture for the region. Which if these recommendations would be best for that?
