You can type in most place names and get a detailed forewcast
Ahem ...................... clearing throat .....................
All from another thread.
Thank you to all the other posters that actually done the work in finding these sites. Your help was much appreciated.
Well then we can add 1 more
Ah, touche sir.
Some of those links no longer work and most of the give little info some just sat pic's. (or maybe I'm not reading them right)
Just thought it was a nice simple (yes like me) easy to read format with good info where you can specify your area.
Not touche just found a decent link and thought I'd share it.
Just having a little fun, but back to more important matters.
I usually use this one the most. Not that it is the best or even the most accurate simply its the most info in the easiest to read format. I have noticed that when i check 2 or 3 different sites i can get 2 or 3 different readings. Now rain, sun, etc doesn't really bother me that much, but you want as accurate a wind reading as possible so i usually take the average from all 3 sites and work off that.
How do you find that site for accuracy when you get to the range?
Pretty accurate, I like the cloud cover reading and I use it a good bit for fishing especially with wind guru if going off shore.
This could sound silly and probably will be.
Wonder if a site could be developed from a shooting point of view ONLY. Now i know we get most of what we need from the normal weather sites, but i talking a more detailed forecast, every hour or even half hour that could give exact wind speeds, not averages and exact directions not just North West or the likes.
Am i asking too much here or am i missing a site thats does this already?
Why not use the "Shooters weather Rope?"Simmilar to the" Pilots weather Rope"
Hang it out at the range from a handy post and to use it.
If it is hanging out from the post windy.
Cant see rope or post foggy
Rope and post are wet raining
white in colour snow
white in colour and stiff frost
white in colour,stiff and hanging away from the post blizzard
rope is dry Sunny
rope and post bouncing up and down earthquake
nra.ie give 15min weather updated weather. Ground temp windspeed, humidity, atm pressure etc. More up todate than any other method country wide
Simple. Functional. Easy to assemble. I'll take three.
Correct meif i'm wrong is this not the weather for road or road conditions. Haven't bothered my a**e going onto the site, but does it give conditions around ranges or is it only major roads?
It covers a multitude of roads. U can triangulate the info to figure out weather changes, and in some cases predict weather. I'd send a link except I'm on my mobile. Charger for laptop fecked.
Closest to midlands range is Kilbeggan!
I use XC Weather a lot when I'm planning a days sport, nice to see what the weather and wind will be doing :-)
