Re: Weather Forecast Tools

If you have SSB, Chris Parker on 4045 at 0630 EDT. Simply the best. Chris's web site:

Marine Weather Center - Bahamas & Caribbean Marine Weather Services

On my Phone now so dont have the URLs handy but...

I use Wearher FAX images from NOAA a lot...available online or via SSB transmission

GRIB files are also quite popular. Data files and viewers available from several sources.

Passage Weather web site is popular w many... basically a GRIB viewer online.

Bouy Weather...another popular site.

Re: Weather Forecast Tools

Here are a few i use...
www.sailflow.com/spot/49753#forecast
www.swellinfo.com/surf-forecast/elbow-cay-bahamas
www.windfinder.com/forecast/marsh_harbour_abaco
Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers - PassageWeather
www.ikitesurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=235&regionProductID=2&ti meoffset=1
www.buoyweather.com/wxnav6.jsp?region=bahamas&program=Maps
www.zygrib.org
Radiofax Charts - New Orleans

Some are for the Abacos because that is where we are now but they can be tweaked for any location. Hope this helps. Chuck
