Not sure where 250 gets them but I've found this one useful
Forecast charts
it give a forecast going out two weeks in 3 hr steps and it animates for those of us that like pretty pictures.

Looks like the Jet stream isn't going north in a hurry.

Let's face it, we live in The UK but our weather is like Iraq (a little bit Sunni, but mostly Shiite)!

You're spot on. I remember often thinking "Damn, I have the wrong coat with me today!"
Still, blue skies again this morning, although it's cool. Actually, it's very like summer in Iceland.
