weather websites???

I'm planning a tour next spring, and I need a really good website that goes into detail about weather history in verious parts of the world. Ideally 'm looking for something that will show windspeed as well as direction for any given area at a given time, as well as all the usuals such as rain, temp etc. know there are a lot of weather sites out there, but can anyone point me to the good ones?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that, chaps, much appreciated. I could do with one that gives wind direction as well, though. Need to know if we'll be in a headwind or not.

Thanks

+1 on AccuWeather. I have a Premium subscription for work, but the free version has all of the parameters the OP listed.

The best weather websites I find are usually linked from surfing web pages. Try looking there (surfing web sites).
