Does anyone have any information or idea of the status on the CRWS website for Jet Stream maps?  It's been a while since I'd been there, but when I tried over the weekend, and still now, all the links come back giving me 403 permission errors saying I don't have permission to access the gif files anymore?  Any news I missed?  I've been using this site for years and would hate to lose it.

Astrospheric also has a jet stream layer, select it from the left menu, under Map.

As a follow-up, I dug around and found a posting that sfsu.edu was no longer supporting the site.  Too bad, I found it the easiest to read and use jet stream maps for aiding in predicting local seeing conditions.  While I find the other sites usable and do use the Astrospheric map, I found the lines and vectors with windspeeds listed much easier and user friendly.  If anyone knows of an equivalent site with the lines and windspeeds, I'd be interested to know.  If not, guess we can close this thread.

I'm not familiar with that service but I use this one for wind forecasting for my kiteboarding activities. I use the Jetstream map to see how weather systems that could bring us wind are moving across. This service has many other layers of forecasting that may be useful too.
