i look at weather charts and wind forecasts, but i found they still dont predict reliably local spouts, violent winds & lightning strikes .
I have been caught unaware a number of times , last around 10 minutes. luckily they found me either setting up or putting the kayak away on the car & not out on the lakes.
is there any thing you keep an eye out for in the sky regard local conditions? having a few minutes warning would make a lot of difference.
limiting kayaking to only when there is high pressure would mean staying home most of the time : (
