I'm not suggesting you leave your information-gathering til the last minute, but I've almost always gotten a good answer by just asking for "local knowledge" over the VHF (make contact on 16, then switch away). You probably get the most timely info this way, and people are usually willing to help a stranger/fellow sailor out.
