    For anyone heading out on any current LR trips or one in the future, I have included a few links to click on that will show specific areas using the Windytv app.

    Windytv is now the "go to app" and has several different forecast models and is easy to use.

    The forecasts go out about 9 days. the farthur out you go the less reliable the forecast but you can get a great read on overall trend for wind and wave condition as well as swell direction.

    -TO PUT MAPS IN MOTION FOR THE 9 DAY FORECAST CLICK ON BOTTOM LEFT ARROW.
    -USING YOUR MOUSE YOU CAN SCROLL IN OR OUT
    -USE THE MENU ON RIGHT TO SWITCH THE PARAMETERS-there are many

    Couple pointers- there are a lot of features. the right task bar can show you swells , swell direction, currents , current speed as well as of course, the precipitation forecast.
    Keep in mind the air temp off shore is frequently closely correlated with the water temp in that area.

    Happy Fishing!
