Oi.... you spying on our weather ? ...
Looks quite comprehensive, not sure if it is that accurate tho ..... yet.
Our weather forecast in the UK is pretty good. Met office via BBC is one I tend to use.
Countryfile weekly outlook is usually quite good too.

Looks detailed, but easy to understand.
I like it as it says we are going to have a sunny dry week!

Our boss pays for the never up to date, always wrong Met Check, which predicts snow most days.

We use BBC as its usually updated to within an hour or so.

Frank sent me this link about a week ago and it's has been fairly accurate for the last week or so. I like the detailed break-downs especially.
