Weather stations

Any one know of any on line weather stations apart from www.chimet.co.uk and www.cambermet.co.uk, which give live weather/sea conditions?
I feel another post for the Ref section comming on.

Thanks Guys

I have had a good look around and can not find many others that give sea state as well as wind speed/direction inshore.

Just had a look at the stats at Chi Bar for last saturday around the time the token and real Irish were playing. 2+m waves at 6-8 second period, 36, gusting 46kts. Would have been similar at Portsmouth entrance. Good call staying in the harbour!!!!!

I will keep looking for some more useful sites.

RIBase
Would anyone think it useful if I collected together all these weather websites and asked John to put them in the Reference Section of RIBnet?
