/ Comparing forecasted and observed weather
Does anyone know of a site where I can compare a forecast and the actual observed weather for a given location and date (say a couple of months ago)?
Surely there's an archive somewhere?
Basically, bit sad - want to add to my ML logbook to show difference between a plan to go out somewhere and what actually happened.
As we all know, sometimes we get it right, sometimes we don't! All experience is a good thing!
the Met Office website has this archive information for the sites they make observations from.
I don't think anyone archives <forecasts> for public access (and forecasters like the Met change the forecast throughout the day) - I presume this is (a) because not many people are interested in old weather forecasts and (b) it would reveal how accurate they are!
You could ask MWIS if they keep their forecasts.
