BBC Thunderbolts - Are they Red, White or Blue... or yellow?

Just had the wrong forecast after ITV Evening News tonight - the forecast from the previous evening with Manali Lukha was played out instead.

Anyone else notice this?

Looks like the pollen forecast on ITV is over until 2021.



I think hayfever sufferers (myself included) across the country are jumping for joy right now!

In the words of Trump - if we stop counting the pollen then there won't be any Rolling Eyes

I don't know if anyone watched Countryfile last night, but during the weather forecast, Schafernaker forgot to put his microphone on.

I've noticed in recent months, BBC Weather has ditched the UK place labels during most of its forecasts, especially as the graphical animation is played. They fade back on screen as the action pauses, before vanishing again as forecast continues.

This is a MAJOR improvement and allows easier viewing of what is happening in your local area and beyond!! Without "Birmingham" and others obliterating half the map.

The place names remain for regional forecasts, which is acceptable, as the map is zoomed in so they don't get in the way as much.

What do others think? Have you noticed?

Hadn't actually noticed but a welcome change.

Why do they have to put place names up at all anyway? Is it because those living in Norwich and Birmingham etc forget where they live in the country? Laughing
