Give them a chance, sure it won't be long before it changes to match the Metoffice forecast which is currently no rain at all with sunny intervals at 10am then cloudy in the afternoon.

I am liking the Accuweather forecast though, mixture of partly sunny/cloudy all day with no rain and 20c-21c

It's changed again. Metoffice has now lost the 10am showers - which is nice. Here's hoping for further improvements.

Well would you look at that, BBC Weather now mirrors what the Metoffice had listed this morning.

Weather forecast keeps changing almost hourly. But has looked positive all week. I'm really trying not to obsess over it, but find myself checking it every 5 minutes!

German Sea King Mk41 (8971) has just departed Culdrose, presumeably on its way to VL.

Some time in the morning, whoever is in charge of 558's Twitter page sometimes posts up routes and timings so keep an eye on that.
