I wonder whether this link should be in a 'sticky' post at the top of this section?

Yes please,   :bounce:  then I don't have to spend hours searching everytime I intend to go to Wales   :)

Thanks to Peter and hoehlenforscher for the other links.

The more sources people consult before going caving the better so far as I am concerned.

Just be aware that different sites may not always say the same thing or, if they do, they may say it in a different way.

Personally, I tend to stick with the BBC site because I find the estimated wind speed and directions to be particularly useful when it comes to accessing some of the more remote digging sites.

...and if you want, you can get a fantasy forecast from http://www.metcheck.com - at least for the longer term forecast.

hoehlenforscher:
While we are at it then, another link to a site I use when doing something very rain critical on the farm. You need to run the 6 hour animation for full effect.

I tend to then use a bit of common sense to estimate what the chances of being affected by rain are and how long you have before it hits. Obviously thunderstorms are a bit hard to account for but if they are about you can make allowances.
