I still detest the appearance of the temperatures on the new BBC forecasts. Their presentation remains very poor and initial appearance on the map awfully gimmicky. I also think that temperature representation on weather charts always looks far better when the figures are presented within a circle rather than a square or as we now have, a rectangle.
On clear blue sky days like Thursday and Friday across much of the UK bring out the sunshine symbol to the main charts and use it. If they are happy to use it on their BBC apps and on the smaller day to day graphics on the main forecast then why not apply it to the main UK map when the weather is significant sunshine.
On the subject of the BBC weather app, I've only just in the past couple of months began using it on a new device. While it has its uses in the immediate future I find it all rather pointless when it tries to forecast up to 12 days ahead and then on the twelfth day proceeds to go hour by hour on what conditions will be. There's simply no point to that kind of extended detail almost 2 weeks ahead. For instance, I'm currently being told that on Thursday 3rd May it will start off with light rain clearing by breakfast, a bright lunchtime, then showers between 3pm and 5pm before a dry bright evening. I'm willing to bet this is 99% wrong when the day arrives. Does attempting to forecast by the hour on a day 12 days away really serve any useful purpose to anyone?
