All forecasts are from pinpoint NOAA models. I built the pages to pull forecasts and organize for windsurfers and kiteboarders.
GORGE WEEK
GORGE DETAIL

Thanks for the feedback, glad it's useful!

Please post your results for different systems/browsers, e.g. Mac, Linux, Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc.

I am particularly interested in mobile results, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.--I know older Blackberries have trouble. Please note any difficulties or formatting errors.
Thanks!
Chris

Coast cams - for now I added a link at the upper left, see it here. The destination page is pretty comprehensive: making another might be redundant.

I'm trying to link to most cam pages with advertising to support those operations. Cities etc. are less sensitive.

Additional Coast info is here

I'll add a Jones Beach forecast later today.
Thanks,
Chris

PostSat Jun 30, 12 8:25 pm    Great information, needs some tweaking Reply with quote

The site is very useful with lots of information compiled into one useful space. I think that the navigation needs some work to make it clearer. I suggest the tried and true KISS (Keep it simple) approach. There is always the desire to show everything all at once, just moderate it and make it clear as humanly possible.

Full disclosure: I work as a web developer myself and can appreciate all the hard work that goes into setting up this up.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep refining it.

BTW, I fixed and cleaned up the NOAA text forecast pages and added Jones and Sauvie:
COAST

Are the gorge week and detail forecasts down? I'm getting an error on the website that the page doesn't exist. Great website!
