has anyone tried http://www.windfinder.com

It an awesome site giving the hourly recorded wind speed for most places in europe showing on a 24 hour chart so you can see the trend for the day, and then a pretty good 3 day wind forcast.

WELL WORTH CHECKIN' OUT

Does anybody remember the 'halo' forcasting site from iceland. now there was a weather forcast. and for some reason it just vanished into hyper space without a trace, earlier this year.

For lots of other forecast links.
Very UK biased but Europe coverage partial.
ROW a bit.

i always use windfinder and wetteronline.
WF always tells too much wind and WO too little.
so the difference between the two is what will happen.

bonus:
if you're pretty sure there'll be no wind, look at WF only and you'll find a reason to spend the day at the beach :wink:

when you're in office and freshly ran out of excuses, just take a peek at WO only, and your day passes easier :wink:
