I've used Metcheck for years, often relying on it for safety afloat.

The link will take you to Glasgow, just key in whatever location you like and reload.

Thanks for this Grant.  There's more than enough detail there. That's a better site than I have been using.  I'm off Friday and all of next week and was hoping to get out digging on decent days.  There is a bit of a wet outlook indeed! :(

I often look at the military flying info but this is just as good especially for fishing as it takes into account barometric pressure etc when you go into the hobbies section

I have used this Government Site for many years and they provide forecasts for the military too.

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/banchory#?tab=fiveDay&fcTime=1380668400

Just type in your location for 5 day forecast and or a 24 hour forecast.
They also have a very good App for Android too.
