    Bit garish for me and too many adverts. I prefer www.yr.no
    You may have to switch it to English the first time you use it. It is more local so it doesn't show a map of the whole of the UK but I haven't found that a problem. Their long term forecast goes out 9 days and I have found it pretty reliable and it also covers the whole globe.

    If you want a hoot check the forecast for Sochi - not a snowflake in sight!

    Interesting it is picking up all the airfields and airports info, it is a bit garish in a way but clever

    Hang up a bit of seaweed.

    If it feels wet.............It`s raining
    If it feels hot & dry....It`s sunny
    If you can`t catch it...Its windy
    If its stiff & cold..........Its freezing
    This fails when you can`t see it.......Its either foggy or night .:Doh:

    Crumple up a piece of paper into a ball and put it on the outside sill of your bedroom window before you go to sleep.

    In the morning check the paper ball...

    If it is warm and dry it is sunny.

    If it is cold but dry it isn't sunny.

    If it is damp it is misty.

    If it is dripping wet it is raining.

    If it isn't there it is windy.
