i did this while on powerboat course, at 8am for 21 days, metcheck came out on top
Was that their predictions for the next 12 hours?
I usually find metcheck very reliable for about 48 hours ahead, but longer term (as with most forecasts its a bit hit and miss). For sitting at the start of the week and working out of there is boating or cycling potential I prefer Zygrib (http://www.zygrib.org/index.php?page=abstract_en
) partly because rather than giving me a pretty forecast for a a single spot I can see the conditions I am bothered about across the country and evolving with time (so I might decide to head west for better weather, or stay on the east if its been blowing from the west for several days kicking up nasty swell, or it will be clear that theres a big blob of bad weather that just misses you (time or space wise) - which might not.
If it did waveheights it would be "perfect". I think the yr.no site is based on the same data - but I don't find the user interface too intuitive (to my personal taste).
