Jason.....thanks for the offer.......are you different from the rest of the weathermen and actually give out an "accurate report on winds/rain/thunder"?.......  :D
  If you have the time....why not post the future weather on Pullers for the North Shore.......I'm sure it would be appreciated by all.....  :)

Everyone knows where to get the generic marine forecast:
http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/marine/forecast_e.html?mapID=11&siteID=08207
Risk of thunderstorms is generic / waves less than 1 meter is generic for most. Boat types obviously have different thresholds of concern also.
If you want a forecast over land that's specific / precise, I recommend starting with a Terminal Aerodrome Forecast:
http://aviationweather.gov/adds/metars/ (type cyyz / select TAF)
Concentrate on the wind / weather elements and move on to the lake conditions / forecast.

A good representation of current wind direction and speed over the lake.

QPF-Sfc Wind 1 hr. A good computer representation of wind direction over time.

High pressure days are best.

Current error - I wrote NOAA. Not a bad site though.
Not sure I'd have the time for regular posts...
