Gulf Stream Crossing Weather sites
I would like to start watching the Gulf Stream weather daily to prepare for a crossing sometime in the future. What sites have you all found for this? Thanks. The Bahamas Cruising Guide (book) I have is a few years old and the sites seem to be gone.

The VHF weather reports work fine for a one day crossing.

I should mention. I am 2946 miles away from West Palm Beach.

I guess I don't understand. Why do you want daily weather forecasts if you aren't leaving any time soon? Florida weather is a crapshoot anyway, and it's nigh impossible beyond 48 hours.

Check out some of the sites listed on here:

Try these.

There are several other sites that provide useful information, but these are the ones I've saved.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but . . .
