Default Wind Links

Insert the best local wind forecast links here!

Bryan just asked for this to be put up. Sounds good to me.

Here are some images that should auto-update to help out with weather planning, i.e. inbound fronts, tropical systems, identifying and avoiding squall lines, etc.

What does NWS think is coming in?

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/


http://weather.sun-sentinel.com/US/R...Satellite.html

http://www.baynews9.com/Doppler9000.html



Fronts and other systems moving in and for estimating time of arrival.

http://www.windonthewater.com/ and http://www.ikitesurf.com/windandwher...ction=Gmap+Obs
What is going on with real time wind locally and upweather? Is it spiking in a squall line, boosting big and staying there or easing off? What is coming your way and when?


Is some funky, strong wind coming over from the east coast? What does Port Manantee show on PORTS?
