Weather Forecast

Posted on Updated on


One of the most important things before an astrophotography session is planning. You can never go out shooting with your camera without being well prepared in advance. There is something however, that you can never predict – weather!

So here comes my critisism towards SMHI (Metereological Institute of Sweden).

There is no weather website that turns ou to be wrong 9 times out 10 than SMHI (http://www.smhi.se). I am totally disapointed by their forecasts for the weather in Scandinavia. And because of our unpredictable and hard mistaken summers in Sweden it is most crucial you get at least the forecast right. Not to forget about their lousy website and the services that demand a fee in order to subscribe e-mail or link their reprehensible forecast through a flash application which has large limitations and is badly designed.

Contrary to this primitive and lousy website you have the Norwegians who’ve made an effort in forecasting, website layout and usability. It is one of the best I’ve seen so far (conserning weather forecasts in Scandinavia). This is the page I’m sticking with from now on. http://www.yr.no
