As well as getting a forecast before you set off on your expedition or activities its really important to keep looking at what the weather is doing whilst you are out and about.
I constantly switch my view point from whats at my feet, whats coming up on the trail ahead, where the rest of my group are and whats happening in the sky with the weather.
That way you can take action before bad weather hits. There is nothing worse than trying to find your waterproof when its already slinging down with rain and if you had kept your eyes open you could have put it on before it started to rain.
One of the key indicators is cloud formations:
These are large towering cloud formations, sometimes with a flat top. They are dense, moister laden and often look threatening. They cause rain and often thunderstorms.
If you see these heading your way time to put your waterproofs on. If its severe enough you might need to seek shelter.
