Just seen a post from Ruth Wignall on her Facebook page that she was at a training session at ITV Meridian for the new ITV weather graphics which launch later this year.

Interesting to see the Met Office now doing its own very BBC-style video forecasts on YouTube


Clare Nasir presented a forecast for the MetOffice the other day - it popped up on their Twitter feed.

Susan Powell presenting the weather on the BBC tonight, haven't seen her around for a while. Has she been on leave or something?
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.

Thought we hadn't see her for a while - although sure she's done some BBC national radio shifts recently.

Talking of the BBC Weather - where are we with the new none-Met Office contract?

It's been over a year since news of a change in data suppliers, so thought we'd be with the new suppliers by now - or was something agreed to continue, with the Met Office, and news of it smuggled out without anyone noticing?

Still showing on national and regions weather "in association with The Met Office" so no change yet.

A report from the FT last year says the new deals are meant to start in October this year.

Semi-regular. The London hub has been one presenter down since Wendy Hurrell went on maternity leave.

It's produced by ITN. Sian is usually in the same studio as the 5 News team.
