If you’ve ever been to Britain, you’ll perhaps understand why we’re all just a bit obsessed with the weather. It can be a little eclectic at times.

This year, summer isn't really happening. The skies are still grey, the mercury barely rises above 15 degrees most days and people haven’t yet had the bottle to leave the house without an umbrella. It’s rubbish. But will it ever change?

There are loads of great sites for checking what the weather will be doing for the next few days, but one of the best we’ve found for looking a bit further ahead is theweatheroutlook.com.

Here you can choose which dates you want to know about – a lot more useful if you’re trying to plan a short break or a trip to one of the festivals or big sporting events taking place over the next few weeks.

This site could be the best summer accessory you use this year.
