NOAA's GLFCS site has been a saved fav for years, lot's of forecasts that are usually pretty accurate (wind, temp, wave height).  Their animations give a great idea on the mood of Lady O for a particular day.

I have been using Windy for a few weeks and it has been pretty accurate.  It also has a graphic overlay to show wind speed and direction.

buoyweather.com is a good one I use as well. For big lake wave/wind forecasting.

Anything but the Weather Network, they just guess and hope they're 40% correct.
Windfinder and Accuweather is what I have always relied on.
