Live weather

You have probably noticed that the live weather the webcam service we normally provide has not been operational recently. However, we have GOOD NEWS AT LAST!

After several delays the new generator was delivered to Froward Point on Monday, 13 July and it should be in commission within the next couple of weeks or so. The Froward Point team thanks the donors from all over the country very, very much indeed for their patience, support and contributions which have now reached £1,005. This is an enormous help that is very much appreciated.

We have also valued and enjoyed all your interesting and delightful comments about how and why you use our weather information wherever you are – even if far from the coast. They mean a lot to us.

We do hope you will visit the watchstation when you can – please make yourself known to the duty watch keepers.

You can call the watchstation on 07976 505649 between 10am and 4pm
to receive a weather report from the watchkeepers on duty – or call us on Channel 65.
You can now talk to us on VHF Channel 65!
We can provide radio checks, current weather, sea state and local information. To call us, call Froward Point NCI on channel 65. Do not call us on Channel 16 and do not call "Coastwatch" (which could be confused with Coastguard). We are delighted to be able to provide this additional service.
