BBC / Met Office relationship

Post #1 by GarbageBags » Thu Apr 14, 2016 1:28 pm

Hi all, long time no speak.
Quick question. Have the BBC started using that New zealand company for their forecasts yet? I know the Met Ofiice lost the contract but don't know when the handoff is.

Reason I ask is that the BBC forecast for this area and Scotland in general has been frankly APPALLING of late. Like so so bad. And it used to be so good. It would say no rain at all, and it rained on and off downpours all day. One look at the weather radar would have told them that showers were not only likely but guaranteed. Quite a number of days have been badly badly wrong. Used to be so good, right down to the hour.

It could just be "April" but I think something has changed.
