Weather Links

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.

IRELAND

Met Éireann – Ireland’s national Meteorological Service

Boards.ie – weather forum, where the IWO team first met

WeathÉire – a site of personal weather links set up by IWO’s Fergal Tierney

UK

Met Office – The national meteorological service of the U.K.

Netweather – a weather forum very popular with UK wx folk

Weatherchat Plus – a smaller chatty forum that IWO forecaster Peter O’Donnell a.k.a. Roger Smith helped to start in 2005. Some Irish members, mostly U.K. Join us, we don’t bite 🙂
