Links - Weather

Your guess is as good as mine!

How do you decide if the weather is good enough to chance a drive over to the flying field. Do you wet a finger and put it in the air? See how your favourite tree is reacting to the wind? Ring another club member? Watch the weather reports on TV? Well, if you are still undecided here are a few links to some tried and test weather sites. After you've looked at them you'll probably be none the wiser so go along anyway. If it's not flying weather you can always sit in the caravan with a nice cup of tea and talk about flying!
