Weather Underground???

Being a computer illiterate I need help. On my iPhone and I pad I had little squares of Weather Underground tiles for various places for maritime use such as Biscayne Bay, Jupiter to Fla Keys out 60 miles, ect. It would give a forecast of wind and seas for about a week. Now when I try to go to these tiles I get an error that it isnít available.

I loved this info as it would list areas all along the coast. It was free but I would be happy to pay.

Any ideas where they went of how to find them again.

TIA

If you're looking for a good app for your phone, try WINDY. Accurate weather info for just about any part of the world. Free.

The app is called weather underground. I don't have it but heard good things about it. Windy is supposed to be great as well.

It’s “wunderground.com”

I’ve had it for quite a long time.
It’s been unresponsive for several days.
Hooray IT’S BACK. Comes up just fine.
It’s the best weather source I know of and am very glad it’s back.

I have 5 or more locations bookmarked and refer to them regularly.

Thanks ERIC, maybe there is hope for me. I get “Error 404: Page Not Found”. Maybe they favor the west coast.

Agree.
Wxx3 here on TF introduced me to this and it has many advantages. You can set / select many custom features so it provides what you are interested in.

I have so many many weather apps. They all work costal when in range of LTE or a WiFi that lets me in.
One I 'enjoy' is My RADAR. I have the Pro version, aka paid for. I forgot how much I paid. I do like the RADAR feature. It suggests/tells me, amongst other things, wind direction and approaching storms and hurricanes.
Always nice to know when it is time to kiss my ass goodbye.

I also have a lot of weather apps like Windy, ect but this from Weather Underground followed the NOAA weather reporting areas with info for a marine application. It was fast and accurate. It is my desire this is a temporary glitch and will start working soon.

There are also a number of weather apps that utilize the weather buoys.
I have suggested these be modified to automatically determine your position and the next buoy in line towards your destination. Alas, no one listens to me SMIRK

Irv, I use Weather Underground a lot.


For tropical disturbances, Track the Tropics is pretty good too.


Any in depth questions, please call me, would love to say hello anyway.

Use the little double parens button, next to the quote button, for the first several posts you intend to quote... then use the quote button for the last of that series.

E Voila!

It’s not underground but wunderground.

Walt I almost asked that a week ago when I couldn’t do it.
But the way I quote sidesteps that issue. I just say “Dan wrote; ...... and the “Codger wrote; .... ect ect.
But I couldn’t figure out how the others were doing it.
But thanks Ranger.

Irv, that was just a hyperlink to www.weather.gov. That is the site you are looking for. Find your region, click on it and then it will give you the marine forecast for that region. I used to have this site bookmarked on my computer and it no longer works. They obviously changed the pathway to get there so all previous hyperlinks no longer work.

Also another site I use and highly recommend is www.ndbc.noaa.gov. That will give you links to the offshore buoys and that is what is ACTUALLY HAPPENING. So you have a forecast...and then you have actual. Both government websites.

Edit: THis will be more helpful ref NDBC. This is my link in my area but just use the arrows on the border to get where you want. The blue squares are the actual NDBC moored buoys that usually provide the information you need. All others are private and questionably maintained.

https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/maps/WestGulf.shtml

PS...all of the other apps are just a different user interface for the same information. It is not like WindyTV has their own meteorologists. They just use the NOAA forecast then make it look all pretty and shit.
