Improved Met Office Info
« on: December 14, 2012, 05:23:51 PM »
BEEB reported today that the UK Metrological Office has had a makeover on their Leisure Forecast  weather website, where you can get detailed weather in the National Parks, beaches bays and estuaries, even mountain summits. One I have added to favouruites on my iphone.

Northwest Highlands
