Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

See if there is a iPhone version of this. Cracking little app and works perfectly for every location I've thrown at it.

This one. It includes charts, live reports, photos and often a commentary on weather patterns. Very helpful.

Generally, I go for the weather agency of the country I'm in, since they're providing all the basic data that everyone else uses anyway. So in France it's MeteoFrance, Switzerland is MetoSuisse and in the UK the MetOffice.

@thefatcontroller, +1 for the Norwegian yr.no long-range usually pretty accurate too, but need to check altitude relating to report. The iski apps are absolutely terrible- christened random number generator app.

Personally, I travel and find some weather apps are less accurate in certain countries. So you really need to find the most accurate for area you live in. I have yet to find one that does 'everywhere'. Always use different weather sites in different countries.

As a general one, I'd recommend the BBC weather app, maybe not for snow falls and levels (snow-forecast.com is pretty handy for that). For everything else, deffo.
i've had accurate forecast all over the world, only matched with aviation specific ones in some sites

 You know it makes sense.

Obviously it depends on what you want it for in particular. I like XCWeather as it gives me enough detail and if you turn the phone sideways into "landscape" rather than "portrait" then you can get more detail. It gives a 7 day forecast and is accurate enough for me

Slightly off thread, but I have the bbc weather app and the Met office app on my phone. It is amusing to look at the forecasts for the current day on each and quite often find them diverging, significantly.

For snow its hard to beat wepowder, not sure it comes in app form but you can follow them on twitter and get annoying updates when there's heavy snowfall predicted and you're stuck in work (my only twitter subscription)
