Weather Forcasting Reccomendations?

Good Morning Sailors!

I am looking for link's and reccomendations for weather forcasting. My trip will take me offshore for 3-4 days on a SE US Coast to NE US coast trip. And I will be intermittently (sp?) be dropping into the ICW for cover and rest.

Any help or direction would be appreciated! CindyLee

CHRIS PARKER !!!!!!

Caribbean Weather (Chris Parker) Carib WX - Caribbean Weather Information is the 'usual' and probably most used weather forecaster for the SE US, Bahamas, Gulf of Mex. and Caribbean areas.
For detailed routing and weather advice you can subscribe for a single passage (1 month) for ~$90.00 or 1 year @ $180.00
You can also 'listen' for free, hoping that someone is traveling in the same area/direction that you are.

The routing includes very precise and detailed wind and weather predictions for several days out and are based on your exact location and route.
Chris Parker starts broadcasting on SSB 4.045 mHz USB at 7:00 AM (SEE SCHEDULE ON www.caribwx.com/).

I also use PassageWeather - Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers as a good 'backup' source when SSB propagation is 'bad'.

In this area I find NOAA broadcasts too general and 'too conservative' but the 'national ocean prediction center' basic data info is quite good - requires you to do your own forecasting from the data : Ocean Prediction Center

I agree with RichH - Chris Parker is the man.

Anything but NOAA. ANYTHING!

Are you looking for web sites for you to look at weather on your own, or are your looking for weather routers (a professional who you can hire to give you weather advice and routing)?

If the former, here are some cites I would recommend:

1. PassageWeather - Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers

2. Forecast page: RAP Real-Time Weather. This one you need to know a little bit about what you're doing, but it's a great site to figure out the weather systems streaming across the country.

3. www.buoyweather.com

4. SailFlow.com - MD - chesapeake Wind Data

In terms of weather routers, as others have said, Chris Parker has a very good reputation, though I've never used him so I don't have personal experience.

You also could use Dane Clark, who I have used and is a great guy and is very helpful. The Clarks

Bon Chance!

Dane's wife, Jenifer is also probably the best resource for Gulf Stream forecasting.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
