    Thumbs up Weather history for trip planning...(good website found)

    Just thought I would share this website that allows you to look at historical weather data. When hunting/fishing a new area, it is sometimes hard to decide what gear to bring and what weather to expect. In planning for my next float trip in mid September, I went to the site www.wunderground.com and choose "trip planner" at the options on top of the page. Then you just type in the location (i.e. Noatak, Alaska) and the dates. That will open up a page with 10+ years of high/low/avg temps, rainfall, wind and such. Cool way to get an idea of conditions where you are going. Below is a link.

    The format isn't too bad, but I kind of prefer http://www.arh.noaa.gov/climate.php. Lots of info there and great place for all the weather info is here http://www.arh.noaa.gov/. If you are floating a river or fishing here is some info you might want. http://www.arh.noaa.gov/wmofcst.php?...ACR&type=hydro

    Default Thanks...

    Letshunt,


    Thanks for the additional links. More info is always better than less. It is great to see this kind of data.


    This kind of data is very valuable, particulary if you are going to a place for the first time. I am taking the wife 100 miles above the arctic circle in mid Sept. I have spent some time up there, but if I hadn't, I would not have a clue what to bring. Clothes, sleeping bag, tent stakes or rock bags, axe/saw or neither, amount of stove fuel, type of stove, type of hat/glove/etc... Sounds like simple stuff until you start trying to pack it. So many options. A bit of a double edged sword.
