Keep an eye on the forecast with WindyTV

These days the chances of another Micheal Fish gaff are few and far between. Forecasting technology has come a long way since 1987 - though if you ask French fishermen they will tell you their shipping forecast (which took its data from Bracknell) was dishing out hurricane force winds to French fishermen that day - several of our boats were still at sea fishing around midnight on the Friday night when they were passed by French trawlers heading for the safety of Newlyn!

You can bookmark the Through the Gaps has a weather page which is dedicated to providing a range of live forecasting tools - Windytv being the newsest and easiest to use - just click anywhere on the chart to get basic wind info - or adjust the timeline at the bottom of the graphic to look up to three days ahead!
