  1. Detailed Forecast

    Here you'll find all the detail you normally expect from BBC Weather, including the 5-Day and 24-Hour forecasts now visible at a single glance. We've also given more space for health information such as pollen.

  2. Maps

    Maps aren't everyone's cup of tea, but we know how important they are to those of you who use them. We've re-organised everything here and put your location right in the middle of your local map. Temperatures are included, and we will be adding wind information later. Your country view and local pressure area are just a click away using the tabs.

  3. Average Conditions

    Unfortunately only appearing on a limited number of locations, the interactive Average Conditions graph allows you to look at local climate data and play with it to compare different values. Where you find it, use the links below the graph to change the values being displayed.
