Alternative Weather Sites

Firstly the trusty BBC site is user friendly allowing you to enter your postcode for a bespoke forecast which always appears on the front page of the BBC news page. It uses the Met Office model data. 

MetCheck This site uses the American forecast model data and allows you to make your own graphs of forecast weather parameters and another useful site is MeteoGroup which also uses American forecast model data and Met Office radar data.

For rainfall see:
