Metcheck.com - online weather checking tool
Member Name: Scotty9
Advantages: A great detailed breakdown of weather
Disadvantages: Can't always be accurate
Metcheck.com is one of my favourite weather checking resources. It lets you find the weather forecast by place name or postcode. Upon searching for your location if you bring back the nearest forecast for your area assuming there is one. Certain remote areas will not have their own forecast. Metcheck lets you see the weather forecast for the next three days or the next seven days. Obviously the seven day forecast is quite liable to inaccuracies due to the nautre of changing weather.
One great feature of Metcheck's forecasts is the fact the weather forecast for a particular days is broken into three hour intervals on the three day forecasts and morning, afternoon, evening on the seven day forecast. This breakdown gives details on real temperature, felt temperature, UV level, rain fall in mm, percentage cloud cover and wind speed and direction. This breakdown of weather is ideal for planning a trip in the outdoors be it walking or fishing etc. It lets you know what weather is expected and when. I use this forecasting tool when planning my fishing trips as in general you are looking for a dry, cloud covered evening when the temperature is warm and the wind drops. Metcheck lets you find the exact times this should happen.
Metcheck is my favourite weather checking tool online but it don't always believe it. Makes provisions for rain if the forecast is dry, especially if in the wild outdoors. The weather isn't 100% foolproof prediction wise afterall!
Summary: Without a doubt the best weather forecasting tool online for an hourly breakdown of the day
