Weather Forecasts

Post by Colin Fairburn » Tue Sep 14, 2004 1:39 pm

Whenever I am planning to go away on holiday where ever it is in the world I always consult http://www.wunderground.com. Not only does this site give you the usual 5 day type forecasts, but more importantly it gives you historical data going back years and years.
Therefore if you so desire, you can look at the dates of when you are going and compare them to as many years as you care to mention. This will then give you a reasonably good idea as to what the weather is going to be like and take some uncertainty out of things.
At the end of the day however whatever the weather does, it will do and there is absolutely nothing you can do to avoid it except do as much research into the type of season/weather you could NORMALLY expect at the time of year you go.
Also the good thing about http://www.wunderground.com is that they give you the 'heat index' which for all those who dont know is the temperature that it ACTUALLY feels like when taking into account the standard temp and the humidity index combined - a far more realistic temperature guage in my opinion and regularly used in forecasts on american TV and radio
