/ Which websites from weather forecasts: France+Spain
For France I mostly use Meteo France (http://www.meteofrance.fr ), especially the mountain section when in the hills (http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-montagne/) but for Paris (& Fontainebleau is quite close) I mostly use http://www.meteo-paris.com/
Meteo France is normally good enough for the French side:
The avalanche report is very good http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-montagne/bulletin-avalanches
The weather forecast not so good, as it focuses on ski stations but it is normally enough http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-montagne/
Slightly off-the-wall suggestion - the Norwegian site:
Produces pretty decent results for the UK, and presents the information beautifully with a really clean, uncluttered design.
No reason to assume it'd be any less usable for Spain or France. :o)
I guess it may be just as usable, but it'll give you different results. The meteofrance model will be optimised for France, the Norwegian one won't. Stick to Meteo France.
Indeed. The same situation exactly as using the Norwegian site in the UK.
I find yr.no to be generally impressively accurate down here in Pyrenees France, I look at that and meteofrance, both tend to agree, though temperatures on yr.no seem to err on the cold side.
If you want accurate and locally precise weather forecasts for Sella, Toix, Finestrat etc here on the Costa Blanca, try www.oratgenet.com It is a Valencian-Spanish-English language site.
Been here 11 years and tried them all. Meteoblue ssems the best.
