A very cheerful weather site


The weather is a popular subject for many, so here comes a site suggestion; check out isitsunshine.com. Instead of BBC weather which often gets it wrong, or Accuweather which has a pretty cumbersome and dated looking site, check out isitsunshine which gets its data from reliable Norwegian weather group NRK.

Basically, enter your location and see oversized and cute graphic weather icons layed on top of your Google Maps. Move the slider at the bottom of the page to see how the icons change during the five day or so forecast.

What's so neat about this site is reliability (my dad swears by NRK) and detail. Handy for Londonites who want to get an overview of weather differences across town.
