Weather forecast sites

Metcheck is giving me an error report at the moment.... can`t find out what the weather is from them for Portsmouth.
So I went to the Met Office site, and checked it there..
Good news folks..... Midnite to 0300 visibility GOOD
                                      0300  to 0600  visibility VERY GOOD
                                      0600 to 0900  visibility VERY GOOD
So you don`t need to put your car lights on tonight when driving around here !!!.

In meteorology, visibility is a measure of the distance at which an object or light can be clearly discerned. It is reported within surface weather observations and METAR code either in meters or statute miles, depending upon the country. Visibility affects all forms of traffic: roads, sailing and aviation. Meteorological visibility refers to transparency of air: in dark, meteorological visibility is still the same as in daylight for the same air.

Just copied and pasted that , and cut it out, to keep with my driving licence,  so I can show it to the officer when he stops me, for not having any lights on.... ! Roll eyes

Metcheck is not being looked after at the moment because the owner is in Jail.  I hope they throw away the key.  www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-16990974.html - 131k .

Re: Weather forecast sites

No, I don`t have all the gizmo`s and sidebars, they only take up room on the screen, and on the computer, so less is more.... !!  Cheesy Grin Cheesy
Anyway, as previously mentioned I usually do my own weather forecasting, from the same info you get Pierre !. It was just a curiosity that I went to metcheck.... then the met office... !
