Have a look at this for a good 6 day forcast of north atlantic synoptic charts - then make up your own mind what the weather will do

Bramblemet is great for realtime info in the Solent (or at least it will be when they fix it). You can get it on your mobile too through wap which is dead handy

Try weather online. The sailing section is very good. Having selected the sailing section click on Great Brittan and it will give you a selection of areas with wind forecasts for a few days ahead.
