In PM tonight: a brand new weather forecast!

Stay tuned. We want to know what YOU think about our brand new weather forecast.

Why? A few weeks ago, an informal experiment among our listeners suggested that our nightly weather forecast didn't work for many of them: they couldn't remember the weather for their area.

So we asked our audience what would work for them, and had some fun trying out several ideas on air...including using birdsong and regional accents!

Because of the interest expressed in all this by listeners to PM and iPM, Radio 4 is using PM to test a brand new style of forecast. It's a sort of pilot scheme and your opinion will help shape how the new forecast is rolled out across the entire network.

The map you see here might help you - forecasters will use this map for the experimental forecasts, and there will be clear signposting of each region BEFORE each bit of weather. There will be other changes too.

YOUR OPINION MATTERS! Radio 4 isn't holding a vote but it does want to know the views of as many PM listeners as possible. So please listen in later.
