Best routing information

What resources are available to assist as skipper in deciding on routes taking into account currents and normal weather patterns.
I'm not looking for a daily or weekly weather forecast. I'm looking for rules of thumb all put together in easily accessible form.

For example stay away from Bermuda from xx to xx months.
Most cruisers go from port xx to port xx in months xx,xx,xx as the trades and currents are typically favorable.

This stuff seems to e well known as every cruising log mentions this sort of thing.
Now with the internet there must be places where it can be easily found as opposed to just word-of-mouth.
I had thought that noonsite would be the place but it seems not.
