Where do you get the weather forecast from?

Other people always seem to have heard something very different than me!
I rely on the BBC website forecast for my postcode (5 day or next 24 hr).
Which source do you consult most for the weather forecast?

I have a look out the window and see what the clouds look like. I am rarely wrong but can't forcast more than a few hours ahead.

I sometimes use my iphone app to give me an idea if I need to know further ahead.

Met check.
Used to be NOAA when I lived in the hurricane belt.

The best sites that I've used for years are:

www.net-weather.co.uk
www.theweatheroutlook.co.uk

And for weather in America/Canada www.accuweather.com

Someone called Joe Bastardi used to work for them and he was very interesting, but if you Google his name, I think he comes up on WeatherBell and he has lots of ideas about weather, especially winter weather, but not always totally accurate, but he does get very exited about it (have a look at his old accuweather videos)

Hope this helps.

Metoffice, net-weather, theweatheroutlook and sometimes met-monkey, especially their messageboard, to see if their weather forecasts/ideas are the same as those of the metoffice!
