Should you bring a brolly? Met Office Weather Forecast has the answer.
The UK’s famous forecaster promises to give you the most accurate, world-leading global weather forecasts, and its prediction skills range from whether it’s going to rain in the next hour to what the weather will be like next Wednesday.
In addition to the hourly and weekly forecasts, the app brings you three TV forecasts a day, severe weather warnings and an interactive rainfall map that covers the last six hours and the next 24.
In a few taps you can discover air quality and pollen levels, atmospheric pressure and wind chill, UV levels and even visibility. One of the most useful things Met Office Weather Forecast offers is multiple locations. Weather can vary dramatically over even a short distance: it might be balmy in Birmingham but grim in Gloucester, and this app has the lowdown. It’s also really handy for planning long drives, where the conditions might make you consider a different route... or checking what the weather’s like at home when you’re on holiday (not that you would ever gloat).
