The weather links should all give you current forecasts, I think the best simple current forecasts is Wind Guru. It is a couple of clicks before you get your forecast, but they give a week of wind, waves and cloud. Wind Finder has more stations in the Caribbean. When the link page opens click on the map where you want the forecast for and you will get a simple wind prediction. Then click on “forecast” (upper right) and the full thing will come up.
Wunderground also gives a quick synopsis and knowing how hard it is going to blow for how long. Click on the Caribbean and you will get a nice wind map. Scroll down and click on Eastern Caribbean E Of 75w for a several day forecast. Other forecasts you may find of interest include; Intellicast offering longer range forecasts than many. The Weather Channel will give you forecasts for each island. I like the The Boat US hurricane page, whose hurricane wind graphics are superb and they also they keep excellent historical data. The US Navy weather information is probably or those with time to spend playing. It is really cool – especially animation.
We have two active volcanos;
If Montserrat’s Soufriere Hills is especially active, you need to keep well clear of the south part of the island.
Kick ’em Jenny is an underwater volcano between Grenada and Carriacou, west of Isle de Ronde. You need to pay particular attention to this volcano when the alert goes above yellow.
