Windy is a great weather resource for cruising. Don't ignore the official NOAA but Windy offers a much more granular look at the weather. NOAA forecasts cover large areas over many hours with wind speeds expressed in big ranges (10 knots or more). Windy allows you to pan and zoom to the area you’ll be traveling, and to step through the forecast (several forecasts, actually) in one-hour increments.
