The Met Office is the national weather forecasting organisation for the UK. The user interface in their app isn’t quite as intuitive as AccuWeather but the information is straight from the horse’s mouth. For a given town, it offers the current forecast, plus the weather forecast at three hourly intervals for the next five days. It also gives daily forecasts of UV levels, wind, visibility, chance of rain and sunrise and sunset times. The map tab is less useful, showing the forecast of various layers (temperature, wind etc), across the country and it’s slow to load. This is, however, an essential app for every hillwalker.
