All of the above and add buoyweather to the list too. I'll look at 4 different forecasts and get 4 different things sometimes. For the most part Fishweather (I think its basically the same as windy) has a nice map feature that does a nice wind forecast map that you can move over time and see how a front will move through that has been MOST accurate for me. There are many days I wish I could lash the weatherman on the bow and then ask him about his forecast again. (Yesterday was one of those days)

I use Windy, Windfinder Pro, Buoy Weather, Fish Weather, and METEO, and they have all sucked this fall/winter. Generally they have been "decent". I think they buy the data from the couple of sources there are and just repackage the data into their apps.

The flag at fort Macon is the best gauge. All the apps get it wrong most of the time.
