Useful weather sites for the UK pilot:
- XC Weather – The first quick check to see if the weather is good enough to investigate further.
- RASP UK – The best website for pilots, wind and thermal predictions. See here for an excellent guide to RASP from Judith Mole’s website.
- Synoptic Charts – Pressure charts showing the position of highs and lows. You can make your own weather predictions from these, see a quick guide from Rob Chisolm here.
- Weatheronline – Excellent website for checking different weather models against each other. If they don’t at least sort of agree, the weathermen are just guessing!
