Using PassageWeather with a low-bandwidth internet connection

When using a low-bandwidth internet connection (such as Iridium, Globalstar, Thuraya, Inmarsat, etc.), it is not practical to access PassageWeather.com (or many other websites) in the normal way.  Therefore, we recommend that you follow these steps to download the forecast images (in .zip files) directly to your computer, without the need to "surf" the internet:

Step 1: Using a high-bandwidth internet connection (ashore?), save this page to a local drive on your computer.
Step 2: Whenever you want to download PassageWeather forecasts using a low-bandwidth connection, open this local (saved) page in your browser.
Step 3: Open your internet connection.
Step 4: To download the forecast images, just click on any of the links below to download the corresponding .zip file.
Notes: The zip files all contain image files with the same names (000.png, 003.png, etc.), therefore if downloading multiple zip files, it is necessary to unzip them into different directories to avoid overwriting any existing files.

The size of these zip files ranges from about 150 kilobytes to about 1 megabyte each, depending on the forecast region and the forecast type.

This page may be updated as new forecast regions and/or models are added, so it's a good idea to download the latest version before leaving on a passage.
