www.weather.com PRETTY accurate. The trick is to type in the EXACT zip code of your flying site.  Smiley

NOAA

From here go to home and select your own geographic area.

Pat,

I use http://www.intellicast.com/ No special reason, just the one that came up when I searched for a good source for weather. It provides everything I need, especially wind conditions, temperature and sky cover too, up to seven days forward, so far has been pretty accurate, and a great help.

Here is the link for Raeford, NC where the Kudzu classic will be held next month. This page will give you a good idea of what you can find at the location of your choice: http://www.intellicast.com/Local/Weather.aspx?location=USNC0557

So here is my question:
What weather reports do you use to decided if the weather is going to be good enough to go fly?

I use:  undergroundweather.com
           NOAA hourly forecasts at:  forecast.weather.gov
           weather.com

The wind speeds are what I look for along with temperature and sky cover (I take lots of photos)
