Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the days of Broadcast Meteorologists preparing the forecast themselves are long gone (as much as many of them are qualified, experienced forecasters), it's more about making sense of the forecast and model prepared by the Met Office and being able to communicate that to the public. That's why you have a combination of Meteorologists with TV training and TV people with meteorological training, particularly in the regions.
Hence when it goes wrong it's Exeter who take the flak. If extreme weather happens as per the forecast it's more likely that they will get a BBC Weather personality to do an explainer.
Write that down in your copybook now.
