/ Which Forecast
Is their any point in making definite plans 3 days in advance.
Yes. Tell us what the best ones are folks and I shall make sure they go in the revision of Kintail's Conditions Central.
Cloud levels are one of the hardest parameters to forecast, unfortunately.
The Met Office's mountain area forecasts are worth using, too.
MWIS, MET office, BBC sometimes, windfinder etc... If they all say the same then make plans as it's a fairly certain forecast. If they all say different then hold fire because there is a large degree of uncertainty. From what I understand, the various forecasters are provided with the same info (from the met office I think?) that gives % chance of different things, and then draw up their forecasts from that.

Getting a bit ragged around the edges, a few broken links to sort out and probably some new stuff to adopt. I am hoping to see some good ideas here.
Good to work with you last month Mike. Pity it was in such sad circumstances. Let me know about blog and report stuff as well so I can get that side of things up-to-date on Conditions Central as well.
Along with the usual suspects I quite like this Norwegian weather site http://www.yr.no/place/United_Kingdom/England/Kendal/
