Predicting the wind

Hi, Both my wife and i took sailing lessons over the last two weekends on the Potomac in DC. Both experienced days with little or no wind during the class. anxious to get back on the water, we're trying to schedule a day to go sailing and was trying to find a perdiction on winds on the potomac. The weather related sites i've been to don't seem to forecast wind more than a day or so out, which i can understand it's got to be hard to predict...but i was curious if there are any good resources for trying to figure out what the wind is going to be doing? i haven't called the marina yet, that's next, but thought i'd check here to see how real sailors plan when they make a run to the marina. thanks in advance! Tim
