Excellent site with lots of information.

2014-10-25 00:03:22
one of the best sitea around

2014-10-24 04:12:24
Essential service for the Isle of Wight in so many ways. Enabling an accurate forecast because mainland weather is not always the same as weather on the Island. Well laid out and easy to understand my world would be less manageable without Isle of Wight Weather forecasts. Thank you.

Excellent and reliable - being an Island we cannot always get an accurate forecast from mainland reports so this service is vital to us. Thank you. Mary

2014-08-17 02:00:17
good service

2014-08-08 13:35:29
Excellent and reliable. It would be a dreadful shame if The Isle of Wight Weather Station Network was closed. As an Islander with many Island interests an up to date weather forecast is essential rather than a mainland UK one that is often not relevant.

2014-08-08 02:22:33
Very comprehensive page.

2014-07-29 00:13:51

Thanks for a great service it helps me as my wife is epileptic and reacts very much to thunderstorms your service has been a great help as it gives me time to make sure that she is ready before the storm hits our area.

Does what it says on the tin, and even though I'm no fan of thunder and lightning, I could not do without it, as it allows you to prepare for it.

Very interesting site, I spend a lot of time on it and have learned quite a lot.

2008-07-02 04:25:38
Whilst the websites monitoring equipment is fairly local it suffers from significant echo signals, false signals, and has repeatedly missed storms 25 miles from it! If they could improve accuracy would be greatly improved.

2008-07-02 01:25:03
Excellent site with accurate data

Very useful. Especially like summary of month's data.

Improvements? Probably not practical but it would be nice to have localised readings as well - eg. Cowes, Ventnor etc. as conditions can vary within a mile or two!
