Weather apps

Lots of weather apps out there but I'm particularly interested in one that is good at wind forecasts. Watched too many news reports over the years of overturned trucks during Santa Ana winds in SoCal. Would hate to be surprised by an extreme wind event while on a trip with the new AS. Any recommendations for an app/apps that do a good job with wind forecasts?

Windfinder is the one we use - good for marine as well as roads.

Those apps are very good. Also good is Airstreams in the wind. While others are blowing around, I am amazed how stable my trailer is in the wind, from any direction. Of course, when they close a highway for wind, like around Las Cruces, New Mexico or practically all of Wyoming, I pull over too. So, good for you to be prepared, and, take confidence that you are better prepared than most from the start. I use Windy.
