Do not like BBC weather forecast

I know I shouldn't but I do keep checking the weather forecast we go on Friday so excited. This morning it says rain on Sat,Sun,Mon,Tues and Wed. Other forecasters not quite as dismal.

I know the island needs the rain to be so beautiful but please not next week.

How can I break this habit ?

Hi,

Look at www.weather.com instead. Just type in Skiathos, Greece. Much better results!!!

Enjoy, Jean

BBC were forcasting rain for this last week, and the sun has been cracking the flags all week. Bit breezy though!

BBC World Weather is notoriously inaccurate but then again, forecasting weather has never been an exact science. The BBC forecast for here in Wiltshire for last Sat/Sun was cloudy and cool both days yet it was very warm with clear blue skies.

Where would you rather be, supping a warm pint of beer and watching a shower of rain from inside a pub in Birmingham, or drinking an ice cold Mythos in a bar in Greece whilst you wait for the shower to end and the sun reappear?

Have had some v enjoyable times trapped in bars/tavernas waiting for the rain to stop and many a headache as a result :))
