A heads-up for a nice website with wind and weather information. It’s called Windfinder. Apart from up to date information about wind speed and direction, it also provides wave heights and periods, temperature, cloud cover, precipitation, and barometric pressure. Forecast data for a week are available, in 3 hour increments.

Another nice feature is the availability of wind statistics for most locations. The distribution of wind speed and direction can be seen for every month of the year.

For selected locations, mainly USA and NW Europe, also information on tides is provided.
