Hmm a bit of experimentation needed with Foreca and Meteo needed then. The Weather Outlook I've never used, I can't see any apps on the site? 

Yep I get Rostherne No2 for my location as well. So not that good either I guess. So which weather service are you finding as being most viable Mike for our area?

I use Foreca as the source in Transparent Weather and Clock , though there is also a dedicated app. 

The Weather Outlook is a 'hobbyist' service run by Brian Gaze ("Buzz") who operates from Berkhamstead in Hertfordshire. He uses Meteo as one of his major sources. Regional forecasts are not that comprehensive, but his analyses and general trend prediction are excellent. 

The Google App is here

Thanks Neil, Foreca is what I've been considering as a data source in TWC, I'll stick with it :)

Hmm, I'm not that impressed with the Weather Outlook app, very basic and looks dated, I will pay attention though to the web page itself that looks pretty decent.

Agreed about the App, though its notifications do provide a quick link to the weather news updates. I think they simply lack the resources to develop anything more elaborate. 

Website content and forum has some good stuff though! Unfortunately, new registrations to the forum are currently suspended, though content viewing is allowed

Of course, Meteo also now provide BBC Weather's data since they dropped the UK Met Office as supplier.

Hm I'd forgotten that the BBC Weather had switched over to using Meteo, and I have been using the BBC app lately and finding it pretty descent, that answers that question I guess then :) I will add the Weather Outlook site to my list of sites to check though so something gained there!

I have always found The Weather Channel reliable, but stopped using the app in the past as it was a bit of a battery killer
