Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

If you've got a Mac there's an app (chf. 4.-) for the iPhone, iPod, iPad and now for all Mac computers as well called Weather HD.

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

I check it on the free forecast app on my Ipod. Seems to be very accurate.

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

Got up early this morning to go for a long walk in the woods, put on my woolly cardigan (don't have any furry slippers), looked out the window and went back to bed.

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

Meteocentrale.ch for mr is the best, very detailed and accurate.

For winter and snow bergfex.com is excellent, but it covers only the ski resorts.

Which Friday?

Won't bother me anyway, because I'll fly to Michigan in a few days, where the weather often changes twelve times a day. Locals say to tourists from the south, "Oh, you don't like our weather? Just stay another hour, it sure like heck is going to change."

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

I find that www.weather.com is actually almost always accurate and even offers hourly forecasts..

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

If you just need to know a few hours ahead we find the Niederschlagsradar very good.

I really like this site, especially their hour-by-hour feature:

http://www.accuweather.com/default.aspx
Thanks for this tip. I have been using weather.com (courtesy of my US-based fiancee) and it seems like it has been wrong every day this week. It also doesn't seem to have great maps (i.e. a website best avoided for Switzerland). I'll look forward to accuweather. Any comments on weatherunderground.com for accuracy?

weatherunderground is pretty good in the USA, maybe not in the mountains, which I don't know, but in the flatter areas. However, it's not very useful in Switzerland. Those guys just can't handle the very much partioned terrain in the mountains.

Re: Where do you guys check the weather forecast?

The most accurate app we've found for our iDevices (far more of them than I care to count...) is Weather Pro HD. I've not used this Weather HD app recommended above, so I can't speak for it's accuracy, but there do seem to be a few complaints around that in the review. Weather Pro HD seems to have high accuracy for the next couple days and better than average accuracy for 3 days plus.

This is based on observations in the Zurich and Zug areas, by the way. I don't know if it's different elsewhere.
