If you're about to travel abroad or go on holiday, what better way to begin the countdown than to check the weather in your destination? The information helps you decide what clothes to wear, and friends and colleagues always like to know that you're just days away from 90 degrees with 10 hours of sun a day....!
And if you haven't booked, you can use the links to check to see what sort of weather you're likely to be enjoying when you go.
Our four favourite sites are:
BBC - gives you access to 5,000 worldwide 5-day weather forecasts, UK weather, travel weather, even a message board and weather chat room!
The Met Office - the granddaddy of all UK weather sites, its focus is the UK and Europe. A strangely addictive site with much, much more detail than most people will ever need.
Skiclub - designed for Skiers, the web site of the Ski club of Great Britain has weather information covering 250 resorts in Europe (including Scotland) and North America. See historic snow reports, a 5-day forecast, snow news or see the conditions live via their webcams.
