Estimated wind speeds and direction are usually given.
Afternoons, tend to be more windy than early in the day.
I enjoy paddling in the wind too, downwind runs are so much fun!

They provide two pieces of information. A graph of wind speed over time and a coordinated graph of maximum gusts. Both are important.
Two other sites with marine forecasts
A couple more that I use:
- NOAA National Weather Service Marine Forecast
Just click on map to see marine forecast for your desired area.
- Weather Underground - Marine Weather Forecast
Again, just click on map to zero in on your desired paddling area or body of water.
