    Would it be possible to add wind speed in kts (knots) on the weather page? A lot of users working at sea or in the air would appreciate this :)

    /me and the windsurfers out there are also extremely addictive to the wind info available.
    Which unit to use should be selectable, I prefer m/s, some bft.

    Maybe these sites could be used:

    Personally, I'd love to see wave height too...
    but then I surf.

    If/when I get the chance I was going to write a dedicated surf forecast plugin.

    It would need to show wave height + period, wind speed + direction for days +0,+1 etc.

    This would be overlaid on a map (the beaches!).

    Then - the cherry on top - MP would auto-alert me to upcoming good surf days at my fave beaches.

    (Data would need to be sourced - or at least screen-scraped from web - not sure what the ethical stance is on this one; perhaps some inplace advertisment would appease.).
