What's your Weatherbug ? How hot are you ?

In the countryside, Derbyshire...
16ºC outside at 1am.

http://uk.weather.com/weather           10 day (ish) forecast


Plan:
Tuesday pm, cut the grass. Kept long for heat, cut short before it rains.
Thursday, wash cars. A lot of dust blown in recently, rain to soften & pre-wash first.



If you open Windows, you keep cool.
If you use Apple, you are cool !
Not really me in the graphic !

I have found it fairly accurate, did you see where it came from?

The rain recorded on the 26th didn't actually occur. It was me cleaning the sensor array. Embarrassed

Thanks for posting - what a fantastic all-round performer.  Just love Parky's reaction, he certainly enjoyed the interview Grin Grin

I found a nice feature..
If you Save Forecast as PDF, you get a nice graph of expected temps, sunshine etc

Weather.com used to do a similar graph, but stopped doing it, which is now under review by them.
