Default Weather Apps ?

I am not a seasoned fisherman nor a beginner , but I get confusing information between weather apps for wave height and winds...I look at NOAA, buoy weather and boat US post forecast. I never know where we land as far as going offshore, it looks good for near shore out to 20 NM but the offshore to 100NM can be twice the wave height and wind speeds at times. Is there a happy medium app, for offshore I guess we are anywhere from 30-50+ and there can be a huge difference in the conditions between Near and Offshore forecast. Do any of the paid apps do a better job with this, and temp breaks etc. I don't mind spending a littler per month or an annual fee for accurate conditions. ANY SUGGESTIONS or Ideas..

I use windfinder / Reefcast/ and Windy in that order. I have found that windfinder seems to be more accurate from what I can tell. You always have to check for a secondary wave which they don't show. Reefcast is always a good one too but its not free anymore but worth the money. Hope this helps.

I have considered Reefcast , I don't think it is very expensive, I don't mind paying as long as it is valuable and accurate.

They both are very good. Learn how to read for secondary wave info and check with 2-3 different sources. For the most part they all use the same data just have different views on them. Reefcast and wind finder are my go to.

Does anyone use SEECast.. It looks like it offers a lot in addition to Reefcast forecast. its 150 per year though.. Not sure if you can click on the temp breaks and get coordinates, that would be fairly helpful..
