Welsh placenames on the weather map went about a decade or so ago, when a decision was made to avoid covering north Wales stories in the way they used to do fairly regularly (till the mid-00s). The symbols stayed till fairly recently though when the maps changed and the temperatures were aligned with the placenames only.
The extra transmitter was installed for DSO at Storeton on the Wirral, forcing some Flintshire/Deeside viewers to pick up the Welsh services as well as the North West ones, despite having their aerials pointing to England.
People will always watch Granada up here though because very little hard news happens in North Wales, and stories about Cardiff City and the M4 relief road are of zero interest if you support Liverpool and commute to work in Greater Manchester.
