Re: Weather radar

I had been using Accuweather for weather radar but tried the Sea Tow app after it being mentioned. Maybe I'm more familiar with the Accuweather but I found the Sea Tow radar harder to use. Just two zoom levels? The Accuweather seems to have infinite levels and panning which is helpful in seating where the weather is coming from. The Accuweather also uses the full width of the iPhone screen while thw Sea Tow is in a box.

Re: Weather radar

An interesting site not yet mentioned is Sailwx.info: ship maps, weather, tides, hurricanes This site displays the MAROB reports (the actual observations of ships at sea.) You will see after a short study how much the actual local weather differs from the synoptic forecasts.

Re: Weather radar

The folks at Stormpulse.com are pretty cool. I kept in touch with them for a bit before they went with the "subscription-based revenue scheme", hoping the entire time my badgering would result in expanding their target market to sailors. The have yet to commit to a marine orientated subscription package, but their interface and data stream is so beyond whats out there, it warrants the pricy annual basic membership anyhow.

Stormpulse really nailed the principle doctrine of presenting dynamic digital media from the get go; Ie. Both Information and navigation of said information should be direct, truthful and effortless. Their interface speaks loudly of that mantra. In fact, on more than one occasion, their Tropical Storm plots have preceded NOAA's in both time and accuracy.

If you do not want to dip into your cruising budget for a Stormpulse membership, spaghettimodels.com has always been my "goto" for current Tropical Storm/Hurricane models. Its basically a collection of every current digital weather map in one page, which when parked on a Mooring with dodgy connectivity has saved the day in terms of effort.
