SolentMet provides easy access to the data from four weather stations in the Solent area (the sea between the Isle of Wight and the UK mainland).

The data display corresponds to that shown on the ‘Chimet’ website and normally updates every five minutes.

A map displays the current wind direction and strength at the four stations and each can be selected to show all the latest data available from that station.

Further details in the form of 12-hour graphs of wind strength and direction, tide, temperatures and pressure, visibility, and wave height can be displayed (where available).

Useful app

Most of the time I find this is up to date once I refresh it so it’s handy for checking the wind.

Very Useful for Solent Sailors

A helpful one-click source of Solent wind data but what about Hurst Castle, Yarmouth or Lymington?

Keep it simple

A simple excellent tool. Quick and easy to see wind speed and direction at a glance.
