The biggest problem is most radio stations (whoever thay might be) don't keep things up to date besides the forecasts can only be as up to date as the bureau forecast times.

That's one thing in favour of our local met bureau in that they give weather reports 4 times a day direct from the met bureau on VHF. Everybody benefits, they get direct feedback and we get to ask questions and get their unbiased thoughts on what should happen for the rest of the day, tomorrow even several days in advance.

This local service from all accounts is one of the best on the east coast and very highly regarded by all boaties in this area.

Cheers, Kerry.

You might like to check out:

This is my station based at Cleveland (less then 300metres from the boat ramp) and it updates to the web every 15 minutes. It also includes graphs and trends, rather then just tabular data.

Hope this helps for future trips.
