Primarily for general aviation discussion, but other aviation topics are also welcome.

An abstract from the latest Airspace Infringement Working Group regarding pre-flight planning:

"No flight should depart unless the pilot has briefed the weather. This is not only a legal requirement, but it is abundant good sense. There are frequent reports of fatalities, injuries, incidents and airspace infringements resulting from pilots not briefing the weather properly. This requirement and advice holds just as much for a local flight as it does for an international flight. For example, there are often reports of flights in a series of short local introductory flights being compromised by changing weather that the pilot had not briefed"

I have always sought a weather briefing before flight, but it has never occurred to me that I may be able to tell the weather what to do. Does anyone know how to go about this, apart from talking nicely to the sky?
