Weather forecasts

Recommended Posts

Just been giving this a try lately and pretty impressed with the results. Bout 80% accurate with the wind out to 7 days.

Meteye has been my go-to before this and I still cross reference and try others.

Willy weather  https://wind.willyweather.com.au/wa/goldfields/esperance.html is not as good as Fishranger I've found.

I use predict wind.  It is a paid service but being a yachty as well I find that it is good results.  Uses 3 different methods to predict conditions and all three are on the main pages to look at. The 24hour prediction is at 1km radius so you can see what the wind is doing at one end of the beach to the other.

They use the BoM data as one prediction as well so you can cross check with them all on the one page. Only issue is that it does not have any inland sites to check with weather forecast.  All coastal or off shore.

I used Windy at lot

https://www.windy.com/?-43.501,172.626,5

 

Covers any country, land and sea and even user selectable heights. Click on a location and you get a prediction table. Sure the Ozi BOM is tops but Windy covers other countries. Plummet put me onto Windy, thanks. They also have an app for mobile devices. All free of charge.

Hmmm...     @plummet Swellmap  doesn't work in Esperance, as I guess we are largely unexplored!!!! :nea:

Windy looks really interesting and I'll certainly follow that for a while and test it out. Cheers Southerly. :friends:

Predictwind is new to me too. Ta for that.

Glad you guys responded as weather dictates my life.........Always has as a farmer in my previous life.
