Looks like we might have a hint of how the BBC weather graphics will look once Meteo takes over supplying data.
The BBC website appears to be running the Met Office and Meteo versions of weather in parallel, with a slight variation in the URLs.
These links may not work properly for everyone - my other half can only see the Meteo page with either version of the URL.

Current Met Office page for Stretford, Manchester: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2636663

Meteo page: https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/0/2636663

The extra "/0/" in the weblink takes you to the new site which is much better in my opinion. I prefer the ITV Weather graphics on screen rather than the BBC's as it seems much clearer yet that is MetOffice - very strange why the BBC didn't adapt their presentation. Confused !

Quote from that post:

What made all this possible are the real advances in app and digital technology that we’ve utilised by redesigning our digital architecture. For the aficionados out there, cloud technologies have changed how the BBC develops and deploys software. We’ve used our cloud services platform provider and the BBC’s own deployment system Cosmos, along with the CloudFormation infrastructure management tool, to rebuild our new services on Weather. This means we can now iterate and scale in a fast and efficient way.


Somehow using cloud services and CloudFormation really is appropriate in this context Smile
