Weather Forecast Update

A couple of days ago I looked at the Jersey Weather forecast, for Jersey for today, 48 hours in advance.  The differences from a number of weather sites were pretty significant.  Ranging from conditions which would have been fairly manageable for intermediate level kayakers to ones where it would have been difficult to keep the kayak on the roof of the car.
As would be expected those forecasts, which were at the upper end of the scale are indicating a significant reduction in the wind speed, whereas the Jersey Met forecast, which I find is usually the most accurate is indicating an increase as the day progresses.
I suppose the main thing to take away from this is to check the forecasts regularly, be prepared to modify your plans as the day approaches and keep an eye on any changing weather during the course of the day.

Weather forecast
Two days ago Weather Online was forecasting SW Force 7 gusting 56 mph. Today SE F5 with gusts of 37 mph. A significant reduction in the gusts.
There is a significant difference with Magic Seaweed. In particular in relation to wave height. 2 days ago 5.1 metres was forecast for 09.00 today. Today’s forecast for the same time is 1.1 metres. A difference in 4 metres in wave height would have a significant impact on kayaking conditions.
Weather forecast
Two days ago XC Weather was forecasting winds up to 45 mph, whereas today the maximum day time wind speed is 29 mph.
Weather forecast
Jersey Met was giving Southerly F4 two days ago but the forecast from this morning certainly shows an increasing wind speed. Still a F4 to start with but F7, for a while, by early afternoon.
