Weather or Not

I will leave the longer explanation for another time, but this is what i use to make my cruising decsions.

Click Here for Wind Map

You can click at a particular point and it will give you the speed and direction.

So what I am looking for now is the light winds between Denmark and Sweden for two days and then the easterlies that are becoming stronger on the third day.

The KK does well in a following sea, so I will take that and get to Norway.

Then as you can see, I must wait until the high and.or the low move, because those strong winds in the North Sea are being caused by the low pushing into the high (or vise versa).

Now, if you think you get more detail for whenever you are getting your weather forecast,

You're not. What you are getting it an interpolation of this wind, temperature and pressure field. It can look more detailed, but it's not.

Or Fishweather and select Forecast Maps. Even though it says US or North America, you can pan to anywhere on Earth. Here is GB/Norway area:

Greetings,
Also weather related...Can anyone post a link to the European (?) hurricane path prediction website please. I've been referring to NOAA up til now but I understand and have seen posted a multi path forecast for individual storms but can't find the actual source.

@Richard, nice toy. But what do i see in this pic, what is happening at the line that almost touch the west part of Spain? Is that a front? the wind goes counter-clockwise around it..

I didn't know we could use it offline.

I'd like that, but have just resorted to taking pictures of each day.

Yes.
But the real issue is not low or high, but the pressure gradient, which causes the winds.

I've been in hellicious winds with very high pressure.
