Another similar weather forecast website is  It's intended for glider and paraglider pilots who need suitable weather for cross country flying, thus the 'XC' in the name. It's based on numerous automatic reporting points on airfields throughout the UK and the maps are updated every 30 minutes. 

You can enter a postcode but I guess the forecast would be based on the nearest airfield e.g. The forecast for Tamesis Club, Teddington is probably based on Heathrow.

I have just been sent a massive set of images from Fotoboat, to go on Y&Y. To prove how photogenic the Merlin is, note that over half of those photos were of our class!

I've just sent the report and top 10 results to Y&Y. Working out the top 10 involved taking my shoes off, and i stupidly left my laptop at the club last night! Tim said he'll get the full results posted this evening.
