Here’s one I like better than the noaa.gov links:

They seem to be updated much more frequently, and you can pick a smaller piece of the lake to look at. Lake Erie forecasts are about 2/3 of the way down. A lot of other useful info there – wind, waves, buoys, etc.

Here are some interactive marine and local forcasts.

This one you can click on the zone for a marine forcast OR you can click on any county for a forcast and current weather.

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/cle/



This one is cool. It is a "mouse over" graphical wave height of the lake. It will show you what part of the lake will see the highest waves. Just point you mouse cursor over the wave height. Then move it over the time you want to see. For an extended forcast just click the arrow above pointing to the right.

Enjoy.

Tee - that one is pretty cool. I like it a lot. Seems like someone out there is trying to give us useful real-time data. Now if we could find one that was close to accurate for the next 8-12 hours.... maybe a consensus of all the weather links with margin-of-error like the political polls. No, wait, those aren't too accurate either... I guess we'll just keep looking. If anybody finds a good one for fishermen, this would be a good place to let the rest of us know!

Did anybody else notice that all day and last night (Sunday), today's (Monday's) forcast was 1-2 footers, so you take a vacation day, and discover a small craft advisory when you get up?!!! Has anybody found a site that's a least wrong by a couple of days instead of over night? These people are getting paid WAY too much.

I just make a call to the baitshops. Most are near the water and only need to look out the window.

Lake weather reports are usually terrible on the weekends. How many times, have I've been on the lake in 3-5's, when the weather report says 2' or less.

Something to try

If I'm going to Conny and not sure of the waves, and the wave report is questionable. I'll get the weather for Cleveland, Geneva, Conny, and Erie. If they say it's windy at these towns, I don't go. Most times this helps me make up my mind.

This time of year it is good to know the surface temperatures.

HERE is a link. Just click on the area you want to see.

Thanks Tee and others,

I took all of your other sites and added them to the first post in this thread.

Looks like a typical Lake Erie weekend! I sure hope they have this one wrong. I am sure it will change 2 or 3 times by Friday. Lets hope for a nice South, Southwest wind. :mad:

I think this is a relatively new site:

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ndfd/graphical/sectors/cleMarineDay.php#tabs

but it's the best I have found! Shows the wave height forcast. I worry about them in my boat!
That is a really cool site. It gives a great quick detail of the lake.

Kim, you may want to add this to your original list at the beginning of the thread. I think a lot of folks would like it as well.

If you go there, and you like it, please get into the feedback section and tell them! The "experimental" status makes me think they might throw it out if nobody uses it. Make sure you save it to your "favorites" - I had to come back here to find the link again!
