Weather Forecasts for paragliding

XC Weather – The first quick check to see if the weather is good enough to investigate further.RASP UK – The best website for pilots, wind and thermal predictions.

Synoptic Charts – Pressure charts showing the position of highs and lows. You can make your own weather predictions from these, see a quick guide from Rob Chisolm here.

Weatheronline – Excellent website for checking different weather models against each other. If they don’t at least sort of agree, the weathermen are just guessing!

Windy – nice visualisation of several wind models
