Only too happy to help -i stumbled across it when I used to use it for windsurfing (before hobby farming became an obsession); I would say the 'superforecast' is 95% accurate. Stay away from the BBC website as it's as much use as boobs on a fish. Another site is but is usually 5-8 hrs behind windfinder...

Well, we've cut it (gulp).  It was kinda now or never.  It had to come off so we've taken a chance.   Forcast is for about 4 days of dry weather and so we're gonna go for Big Baled Haylage again....and there's masses out there.    Keeping everything crossed now that the weather behaves and we can get it finished.   ::)
Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again !!
