This page contains links to weather forecasts and actual observations that should allow you to decide if the weather will be suitable for visual observing tonight. The data is biased towards the Croydon and North Surrey (England) area where most of our members observe from. The data is divided into the sections shown below, some references need a background in meteorology and there are links to sources of background information. If you know of any other sources of relevant weather information please send the details to our webmaster.
