NOAA, Weather Channel?

I downloaded an app on my iPad called Windfinder that gives hourly wind forecasts for selected locations.

My wife booked us a slip at St. Michael's Marina this weekend for my birthday, but motoring across the Bay for 5 hours doesn't sound ideal on a balmy, hot July day.
I agree, but unless you are free to pick your days and go wind the wind and temps are tolerable, you have to take what you get on the weekends or take a pass, which means not a lot of boating between now and September.

Here is a resource someone recently shared with me that looks to be of interest to Chessy sailors.

Chesapeake Bay Operational Forecast System (CBOFS)
