Final Thoughts

The weather forecasts can be extremely helpful when out on an adventure, even though the forecasts may not have an incredible amount of detail.

I recommend always starting with the BASIC weather forecast and then only request the EXTENDED or MARINE + EXTENDED if you need additional information.
