The usual Like 

XC weather 
Wind guru
Met office

....and this one which is a bit clunky but it's a visual global wind, wave height (plus other stuff) 4 day forecast. If you adjust the altitude it will give a 4 day forecast for the jet stream. Bit of a gimmick  but a good visual representation, use it like google earth.

Check several, pick best/worst depending upon whether your plans can kill you or not.

Never noticed one being consistently better than another. At least with the met office you can look at pressure charts and make your own mind up.

Thank you so much! Will start testing them. I've tried Windhub yesterday: looks super simple. I'm a beginner, that matters to me) will check how precise the forecasts are

Xc - weather station within a mile of our club.

Cambermet for the nowcast in detail.

PredictWind- good to see 4 models set out.

Windfinder because we have an RAF base nearby so can see real time and past data in addition to a forecast.

XC weather is the most reliable locally to me, since we have a few airports and can cross reference real time with what's forcast.
