weather info very useful when planning fishing

Post  stubbo on Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:38 pm

I have used this now for a fair number of years
goggle x c weather it also gives you wind direction / temps/ week long predictions/ rain / cloud cover
for me it has been very accurate , but it can change so you need to keep looking on a daily basis , very helpful when boat fishing too

I like XC weather, but it is always a bit gloomy in it's outlook. I tend to use a combination of yr.no (Norwegian site - very good), XC weather, Metcheck and the Highlands and Islands Weather page on Facebook.

I use xc weather most of the time and find it really accurate , but when I go to Anglesey I use "magic seaweed" the wind-surfers weather site it,s great for letting me know what the surf and swell are gonna be like Smile

Very true! I used it a lot when out on the boat as the information on wind speed was the most important parameter for me. It usually overestimated it a touch though.

Do try YR.NO as well. It's much clearer than XC weather, and I feel that the best forecast is one that uses multiple different sites for a broader view.

have tried multiple site weather info before , but found that's to many also makes a conflicting reports so can get a bit confusing as they all say something slightly different , I have found xc weather at our neck of the woods the most consistent, but for your areas , that might not be the case........... Surprised

Well it's been wildly snowing off and on all day and neither XC weather or YR.NO have any indication of it, so I think I'm going to go back to a weather forcasting stone:




I also saw a great quote the other day (forget who said it):

The problem with weather forecasts is that they are right too often for us to ignore them, but wrong too often for us to rely on them
