Handy weather apps

I am one of those people who is always checking the weather.  Do I pack a brolly or not?  You never know in the UK.  We have had wonderful weather for the last month although the last few days have been a bit cooler and rainy. 

I recently downloaded the BBC weather app and it is really good and pretty accutrate.  The app that is built in on my iPhone changes constantly. At times it will be sunny and then changes very quickly.  

The Evening Standard published a great little list of weather apps which I have put in below. 

So now you know if you can have a barbecue in the evening or if you need to take a brolly with you! 

Happy weather watching..
