With a bit of experience, cloud radar and cloud forecasts can give you an idea about clouds and rain showers in the next 4–8 hours. Which is good if you want to go hiking or go for a bike ride. I use the Android app from Weather & Radar.
I found that MSN Weather is actually pretty accurate.
For temperature, I found the meteoblue model to be very good. For wind, nobody seems to have a clue.
Aemet is the most reliable in my opinion. But as said, the weather is notoriously unpredictable, so even they can get it wrong.
I use this meteoblue mostly. I like the satellite images and of course that it is professional.
El Tiempo is the most reliable I have found till today.
