    Is there an app that will provide 24-hour forecasts? In other words if it's 11am, I want to know how the weather pan out over the day. Maybe it will start raining at 3pm and dry up again by 8pm.

    Weatherbug seems to be the weather app that everyone swears by, but as far as I can see it doesn't do this. Currently I've got the BBC 24-hour forecast page bookmarked, BBC Weather | London ,
    but I'd rather something that didn't need me to go into the browser, resize the screen, and which knows where I am when I leave London without me having to type in a postcode, and preferably has a desktop widget.

    Windfinder will give you 3 hourly updates for the next 5 days and you can choose multiple weather stations. I use it alongside Rainy Days as that has a satellite overlay of any rain clouds over a zoomable map which is updated every 15 minutes and shows you the last hours worth of data which is pretty cool. You wont go wrong with those. :)

    Thanks Pointy, windfinder does the trick very well, although clearly aimed at the surfing/sailing community. Not much call for information on wave height from the central London weather station! Rainy days looks kind of hardcore, gives you a satellite image and leaves you to work it out for yourself.

    Strange that no one has done a mainstream app to propogate this fairly basic information.
