Headings: Get A GRIB On The Weather

Let’s start with a quote from the article: “Sailors are preoccupied with weather.” I guess that’s a true statement, so where should we get our weather information? If you have a Practical-Sailor.com subscription, you can find out all about it right here. For those of you who don’t, there is a free trial available…

    There is a new supplier of GRIBs, GRIB.US. They have a novel method of delivery that negates the use of a secondary app (email) and shortens the process of requesting and receiving GRIBs to a single step. In addition to a browser-based interface, they have their own standalone app (ugrib) that is very cool. At the moment, ugrib is PC only, but us Mac users can hope! Check ’em out: http://www.grib.us
