Current conditions

MMWeather provides live reports from Braefoot Bay and a number of other monitoring sites in the Central North Sea. This is the site we link to for “current wind at Braefoot Bay and Inchcolm Island“.


A lot of good forecasting sites are available. They use different forecast models, and different ones seem to work best at different times. It’s a good idea to look at a few, find out which ones work best for you, and if available, download their apps onto your smartphone and tablet.
