Despite advances in monitoring and observation techniques and the general increase in knowledge and expertise, predicting the weather with any degree of accuracy remains a challenge. Therefore the forecast charts shown on this site, with raw data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.) in the United States, are to be used as a guide only. They must not be used for life or death decisions. MetcastUK does not give any guarantees as to the accuracy of the forecasts and will not be held responsible for any events arising from the use of such data.
