AccuWeather.com is a popular website for weather in the US, but it also has a good weather forecast in the UK. Because of the ease of use it’s been my go-to weather app for several years. There are three main screens: the ‘Today’ tab allows you to swipe through hour-by-hour forecasts for the next 24 hours in a given location, giving temperature and weather in handy illustrations. It also gives its own ‘RealFeel’ – similar to the Met Office’s windchill factor. Sunrise and sunset times, humidity, pressure, UV factor and wind speed is also displayed. The long term forecast is for a whopping 15 days. It should come with a health warning – it will change, but it’s useful to plan, or hope. The final tab loads an animated map app. It looks even better on an iPad.
