Frontal/pressure predictions Go to 'USAF Surface Analysis,12hr,24hr'etc..from main menu for predictions.
Glidemet As you're probably aware, Weatherjack ended his daily soaring forecasts for good at the end of this past season. Taking up where he left off, I now write Glidemet year-round, forecasting wind and ridge too. There's no www. in the URL :-).
High Definition Colour Satellite Gigantic, high definiton satellite image without isobars overlay. WARNING: This takes at least 5 mins to download using a standard 56k modem but worth every minute! so go and make a cup of tea!
Lynham Weather Conditions The closest Underground Weather location to the Avon sites. The only issue is with the frequency of updates, which has become quite poor, the data often being twelve hours or more out of date.
Malvern Hills weather station Located at the top of the Wyche so gives speeds and direction that you would expect to find at Kettle Sings. All we (MHGC)ask is that you get your Malvern helmet sticker. See here

NOAA Weather Service This site gives current weather from various location both nationally and internationally. Also give last 24 hours weather. (Locations mainly airports.)
North Wales Weather Today Rob Arnold's excellent North Wales Weather Today Page. A mine of weather map information, including links to the current, 24hr, 48hr, 72hr & 96hr MetFaxes, as well as some more exotic sources of information. This is my first port of call when planning a few days ahead... Also has a good selection of links to other sites, including Met Office synoptic charts. Tim P
Para2000 European Automatic Weather Reports
RASP Many pilots' go-to source for soaring-related weather information on the day and for the days immediately ahead.

Add your own link...

Right, you 'orrible lot. Most of you play fair but we have a growing number of general idiots and professional spammers screwing with the board now and I've had enough. IPs are now being recorded, unnecesary duplicates removed at the touch of a button and your IP blacklisted where appropriate. I don't think anyone has any objection to Avon members posting non-contentious links in Other Links; non-members - you have been warned!
Update: Okay, as we're now the active target of a botnet adding hundreds of dodgy links a day - 28,000 IPs blacklisted and counting - any link you add will require approval, so please be patient and don't add them more than once.
Plus, any attempt to include a URL within the Site Description will trigger automatic blacklisting.
