Weather forecast

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
Assalamu Alaykum,

There are some weather sites on the internet which forecast the weather that is expected in the next 5-10 days. Is it permissible for ua to visit them? I am asking this question because I am afraid that they may be claiming to have knowledge of the unseen or it may be a kind of astrology, in which case it is haraam for us to visit these sites.

It is permissible. Weather forecasts are not claims to the Al-Ghayb (unseen) but just a forecast according to the satellite pictures and other aids.

We all know how often the weather is “forecasted” incorrectly so patently it is merely an educated guess.
