Come on guys, weather forcasting has come on a long way since good ol' Michael Fish. More accurate science and technology. I'll trust them more than checking a pine cone is open or not or if the cows are on their feet , and Costas , how difficult is it for a Greek forcaster? Lol . Today its going to be sunny  8)  8)

I'd rather trust the Dark Sky app! Great for 'now' and 'here' really accurate forecasts as it uses the met office live weather radar data linked to your postcode or GPS location.

No better or worse than the met office apart from the one hour forecast which is to the minute for rain etc. and is great for 'do I put me coat in to nip to the shops or not?' type queries!

You've got a strong point there mate. Still wheather prediction was proven the most for dificult task of meteorological science.  A not to forget it is sunny and is predicted to remain so for the next month or so.
Enjoy the ride tomorow.

So, in the English weather you go out without your coat and get wet on the way back from the local shop...
