The BBC has been getting on my nerves actually - the other day it said my town was 22 degrees and sunny when looking out the windown I could see it was pissing down and no more than 17-18 degrees.

Oooooh weather discussion, love talking about weather, base my whole day/wardrobe on what weather is going to be like.

Met office usually nearer than BBc, although BBc much more optomistic ime. Website called "the waether two" always gets it totally off to investigate weather channel ( am very excited, how pathetic is that?....)

The BBC weather website changes it's forecasts hourly!

It's hard to trust anything they put down as it it'll be different next time you look!

I use Metcheck - they are usually spot on - especially with anything extraordinary - snow etc.

And there;s a message board so you can track weather coming across the country

I'm a bit of a weather nerd I'm afraid!
