I have used Meteoblue for a while now for my weather and rain radar. They have an astronomical seeing page too, you have to register (free, just email and a password) and by signing up you can gain access to it and they claim a 70% success rate at forecasting in advance. I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes.

Well it's fair to say that the weather and cloud did not follow the predictions for the night. It wasn't bad, but there was a lot more cloud at various levels present than the forecast predicted. I suppose it is just that really, a prediction based on best evidence. There were clear spots where the seeing was good, mostly directly overhead, but also down to the Southern horizon too, where Saturn and Mars now and again gave really good steady views. Around 01.30 much more high cloud moved in and at one point half the sky was more than obscured. By 02.00 it had really deteriorated.
