The following is a very partial list of good sites to visit to get weather information around the world. Forums are listed also, and please note there is no implied endorsement of them by IWO volunteers, just a heads up that these forums exist and attract a lot of weather enthusiasts.

Boards.ie – weather forum, where the IWO team first met
WeathÉire – a site of personal weather links set up by IWO’s Fergal Tierney
