If you are on an assigned heading or deviating on your own to avoid weather areas (with ATC's approval) and are switched to another controller's frequency, make sure that the next controller understands that you are deviating or are on an assigned heading to avoid a precipitation area. If you want continuing heading/vector services, make sure the controller understands what you want. Do not assume that the controller knows this! Reading minds is not one of the skills for which controllers are selected.

Use the In-flight and Flight Watch Service for weather updates. Flight Watch can tell you what the big picture is so that you can decide whether or not it's time to call it a day or continue the flight.
