Non-panicky weather forecast sites from Scandinavia, covering England. Excellent weather maps in real time!

OK, it is easy to sound smug but there really is more of this kind of weather in Scandinavia, and it takes a lot more before anyone panics.

The Norwegian version of the Met, www.yr.no, does an excellent weather forecast. You can select English language option in the top right corner, and find graphic representations and detailed forecasts hour by hour, for three days, or longer.

The Swedish SMHI has an excellent weather map for Europe. Each click on the relevant region zooms you in closer. Move the timeline marker to see the weather as forecast develop, with temperatures, precipitation and so forth. Don’t use the English language selection as it limits your options. It’s easy enough to work out how the map and the graphics work without it.
