The Weather Again
here, which shows surface wind speeds, doesn't hold much promise for the next 24 hours - the reddish colour indicates strong winds.
XC Weather is never the most optimistic of sites, but even the BBC has changed its tune and is now forecasting winds of 45mph around lunchtime tomorrow, after which it is supposed to be quietening down in good time for Thursday and Friday's Regatta events. But the weather prospects depend largely on the position and movement of the jet stream - see the site here, which also has a good explanation - which is both heavily kinked and too far south for any good, summer weather. If it moves in, rather than filling, as it was predicted to do, then strong winds are likely.
