It is available in degrees f or c depending on how you grab the feed.
I always found it really good. I have not looked at the feed for a couple of years now thou.
Have you looked for local amatuer weather stations near your local, some people make the data available online?
Thanks for all of the replies - all very useful - So far, I like the BBC one as it happens; it has no distracting ads around the edges and, therefore, does no more than it claims to provide - details of the weather, actual and forecasts.
I don't know what a Girder thing is for the weather.com site so I will take your word on that; I have no problem getting a local forecast via the TV etc etc. - usually it goes out about 24 hours.
I didn't say it as such (and I should have spelt it out) but I was looking for the longer term forecasts across a bigger area - 5 days seems reasonable (and I have been told elsewhere that is about as long as a weather forecast can be expected to be at all reliable) - I have not looked at every site in detail yet, but I think one or more are offering 15 day forecasts. Does anyone know how accurate these may be?
Apart from that, it would be good to hear any more thoughts on weather predictions.
