Hi folks,

Just wondering what everyones using for long range weather forecasting to plan trips? I currently use weatherzone which has served me reasonably well and I am of course aware that it gets trickier to forecast conditions beyond a few days but would be interested to hear if there are some other good sites out there that would be useful!

Cheers

Here in the West I use Elders Weather. If it;s good enough for the farmers then it is for me.

Unless it's changed lately, the Elders site used to be run by Weatherzone.
It still looks awfully like it is.
If you subscribe to weatherzone you are able to access Bureau of Meteorology computer models and a few other things.

Gday
I went into Willys weather on Friday for a report for a weekend trip to the high country. They said it would be -4 to -2 on Saturday and -5 to -2 on Sunday.
It was sunny all day Saturday , and a bit cold on Saturday night, loverly and sunny on Sunday. Almost no clouds and a slight breeze. No snow as predicted .

Weatherzone is really good and Willys is also very good and they have awesome tide info as well for all of the fishermen, I also use BOM, so with the combination of all three I get a good idea of the longer range forecast, but as I'm sure you are already aware you should only use the longer range forecasts as a guide.
