Weather Planning...

I've been searching for a particular weather solution that I envision, but have been unable to find anyone offering the concept below. Anybody ever seen anything like this?

Ideally I'd like to be able to enter my starting, ending, and waypoints for a particular trip and then be able to download the historical and forecasted weather for a particular route. I know I can do this manually - but it's a real pain. Anybody ever head success in automating this processs? Or know of a solution that offers wx data in this fashion?

Hey, Dan - wouldn't the avionics bunch have somethang along those lines? I don't know where to point ya to, butt a visit to your closest FBO might be worth the trip. Good luck - sounds like a great idea (wished I had it last week-end!!).

Best

Try www.intellicast.com I think you can do that on there, I just haven't played around with it enough.

Good Luck!
