In Castle Donington today it is sunny with high cloud, cumulus and cirrus, 15degrees C at 9-15am.

Can you please state your location and weather.

I am curious to see the variations over the country for today.

For many years I talked to a good friend some 60 miles both West and North of me and our weather was often totally opposite. With that background, and some 28 years offshore suffering from incorrect forecasts, I would like to see just what differences there are in a day in the UK.


Over to you.
