BBC Weather is introducing a new set of graphics to its TV broadcasts that will feature a flat map projection for the first time in 13 years.
From 1pm on Tuesday 6th February, bulletins will have a new look, replacing the tilted globe map with a flat version and showing high quality moving graphics.
Roads and towns will be made clearer, to help drivers, and presenters will be able to zoom in to the screen as they take viewers through the day ahead. A globe graphic will also be available to display natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights.
The changes come as the broadcaster works with its new weather services provider MeteoGroup.
Recent updates on the BBC Weather website and app have left users unimpressed in the past few weeks, with many saying that their favourite locations have disappeared and key features are harder to find. Some have even complained that the new website always seems to forecast rain which, unfortunately, is nothing to do with the site’s revamp.
