Toby, thanks for all the great info you're always posting. It really keeps the quality of content high on the forum. One of the main internet weather tools I use is the ASOS. Here, you can see current wind wind speed/direction and review the hourly wind speeds for the 24 hour period. Below is a link to ASOS worldwide. Click on your area and check it out. We also have an automated telephone hotline for the ASOS that gives up to date current wind speed/direction. ASOS is a cool service that can be really helpful at times. http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/ccworld.html

Hi John,

thanks for the link.
I just checked it, good info.
There is another site which is great, I just checked, if they offer Hawaii, they do.
Great at this site is, that they have actual winds (1 hour behind) and the forecast for 3 days, showing 3 times a day.
Maybe you already know it, if not, let me know how you liked it.

Hi,

I have another link. I come from holland and, this site always gives me accurate predictions (often accurate within 60 minutes). You can see movies of the weather predictions.

http://www.theyr.com.

Don't know if there are predictions outside europe. Their images also appear on littoclime (which is often recommended as most accurate :wink:

Have fun,
Alf

Hi Alf,

thanks for the link.
Is the windspeed in knots?
I would say yes, but want to make sure.

Cheers
Toby

Hi Toby, here is a link from our local spot in Brisbane. Two of the guys here have set up a weather station that goes hand in hand with the web cam. It doesn't predict the weather but give you an up to date look at the conditions.

Here's a site that has links to wind sites in Auckland NZ where I live.

It's updated every 10 minutes, states max and average windspeed in knots, humidity, airtemp and barometer reading.
