Trip planning and weather
« on: June 10, 2017, 10:22:22 AM »
Hi all-
I wasn't sure where to post this, thought i'd try here. I've come across this website from the National Weather Service that is somewhat of a trip planner that includes detailed weather along the route, it's in the experimental stage, what I've seen is pretty impressive. I hope the link works.

I Googled for such a tool because I was looking for a planner that would tell me wind conditions. Accuweather has a planner but does not include wind.
What does anyone else use if anything?

Thanks,
Gary

I use a combination of  "WeatherBug" / "NOAA weather" / and "first alert" on my phone.
All have various uses but tend to be location specific.
Your link looks interesting.

Hi BinaryBob,

Thanks for the suggestions. I hope this NOAA based one continues to be supported. I did a test route through the Southern CA desert with a start and stop point and a few wind advisory's popped up, it's exactly what I would like to use before taking off on the day's expected leg of travel.
