UGRIB.com ?

I was using this site in my attempts to sail for Hawaii from Panama. Now being away from the boat, and preparing to return in the near future. I went to UGRIB to start following the weather to once again to sail to Hawaii. It has disappeared, and changed to something else. What site do you use that's free?........i2f

If you are talking about this website, & I assumed you were, then it just offers a grib (.grb or zipped .grb) file download for the area you specify. I don't see this as being OS dependent - just download & open with your native grib viewer.

Maybe I missed it but I can't see a grib viewer within the site anyway.
