charts based on historical data
The links above should
all give you current forecasts, I think the best simple current forecasts are Wind Finder and Wind Guru. In both cases it is a couple of clicks
before you get your forecast, but they give a week of wind, waves and cloud. Wind Finder
has more stations in the Caribbean. When the link page opens click on the map where you
want the forecast for and you will get a simple wind prediction. Then click on
"forecast" (upper right) and the full thing will come up.
Magic Seaweed, is a similar site, but for those that have a pictorial mind, their
predictions really come to life in graphics which shows you just how and when the winds
and swells will flow.
Wunderground also gives a
quick synopsis and knowing how hard it is going to blow for how long. Click on the
Caribbean and you will get a nice wind map. scroll down and click on . Caribbean
Weather Page is another quick fix. Other forecasts you may find of interest include; Intellicast offering longer range
forecasts than many. The Weather channel will
give you forecasts for each island. I like the The Boat US hurricane page, whose hurricane wind
graphics are superb and they also they keep excellent historical data. The US Navy weather information is
probably or those with time to spend playing. It is really cool - especially animation.

Kick 'em Jenny, & other
We have two active volcanos that
are important to navigators. If Montserrat's Soufriere
Hills is especially active, you need to keep well clear of the south part of the island.
Kick 'em Jenny is
an underwater volcano between Grenada and Carriacou, west of Isle de Ronde. You need to
pay particular attention to this volcano when the alert goes above yellow.
