Hi all,

This may sound silly as i know there's many out there and most are probably forecasting for the same but i think i remember one being used on the forum that seemed quite reliable?
Off to a car show tomorrow with no roof and don't want to get caught out!!
any suggestions would be useful.


Thanks

or the horses mouth - the met office all fairly good we pay a company at work to give us quite detailed area specific weather and often its no more accurate than these three

Yr.no is the better one and more accurate I have found.. Met office app is rubbish

Failing that wake up look out of window and go from there

Good to see people still like yr.no!
if u use android search for meteogram weather for an app which shows the detailed 24hour yr.no forecast!
can be helpfull and easier then getting through the website with gloves on

Yea yr.no! was Crashs recommendation - deffo seems to be the best out there..... although the rain satellite of the BBC is usually spot on too.. their summaries seem to lag behind their maps for some reason.

People. The beeb has a panel of people who sit around and 'interpret' the data for their weather maps/news. Then a script is written and performed by a pretty person.

yr.no is raw data from satellites.

The beebs weather output across all media is decided by a panel of weather 'experts' interpreting various sources. Which is why its inaccurate. 18 months ago they took advice how to improve their forecasting, maybe its improved now?
