If you are planning to get out on the water, you can use these resources to check tides, the local forecast, Atlantic surface pressure and conditions in the Solent.

Solent weather

Chimet is a comprehensive weather information system recording weather conditions, both in real-time and historically. It is particularly useful since its information is derived from instrumentation based on West Pole Beacon, ( 50° 45'. 45N, 00° 56'. 59W ) about one mile out to sea from the entrance to Chichester Harbour.

Surface pressure charts from the Met Office, showing pressure and weather fronts, are provided up to five days ahead for Europe and the North East Atlantic.

Local forecast

The Met Office also provide a local forecast for the Portsmouth area, showing predicted conditions for up to six days ahead.
