Weather

Since it was brought up on another thread I thought I would ask the question, as it affects all our plans (Boating or not) these days.

What do people use for sources of up coming weather info ?

I generally use the BBC 5 day local and Weather, these are pretty basic however and can change on a whim to totally different conditions.
As we don't go very far then these usually suit our needs but what else is out there ?

You would think they would be getting the local forcast right these days as they are only now just up the road in Exeter !!

I have found their daily forcast very acurate in the past.

Cheers

I would have thought the Met office and shipping forecasts would have been the most obvious!!!
