Hi Guys,

What is the best weather website for the UK and the sites that you use most often. I seem to get all excited with a good 20+ mph breeze forcast only to trun up at the event and hang around for hours until the smallest of zephyrs arrives. 

Maybe its because I am using the free sites which may not be a accurate?

Cheers

www.theyr.net for a good forecast and
www.xcweather.co.uk for what's been happening over the last few hours.

Look out the window.  Instant results.  I find that most of the free sites are aimed at those who want to know if it is safe to hang out the washing.  So if there is a chance of a bit of wind they always go over the top.  Mind you I am too tight to sign up to a site you have to pay for.

Cheers BWD.

As I don't believe them anyway I won't be signing up either. I'll go back to my usual '' You get what you get'' and ''' head out of the boat'' sayings.

I agree with you on that one. It does not seem to make much difference to me what the forcast says.  I still go to the club.  Moan about the wind direction and then go sailing anyway and enjoy myself. Much better that sitting at home with the childrens progs. on the telly and the wife nagging me to get up and do something.

You have got to check out this weather station - LIVE weather. The arrows move in real time.

There are also 2 webcams. I know this isnot a sailing related site but it is a great example of a weather site. Web designers / meteorologists please take note.
