As I haven’t much to blog about at the moment, what with K being at respite and myself stuck indoors for the last few days, I thought I would let you all take a little peak at a new BBC weather site. I was alerted to its existence via twitter (the BBC bods are on there and I follow them)
It really is worthwhile taking a look as it is quite ‘snazzy’ in design and also in how it portrays your local weather on the page in as many ways as there are available at this present time to show the weather.
Once you have inputted your local area either by inputting your town or city or your postcode, then you will see lot’s of different ‘modules’ which show your present weather for right now,the next four days, a BBC video of your local area’s weather, and a satellite view of your area. In fact I think that they have provided on this beta page just about every way of showing your weather that is possible to do!
To get to this page, just navigate to http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/ then click on the beta at the top of the page to be taken to the new weather service page. Do remember its in beta, so let the BBC know if you spot any problems. I have saved it in my favourites as I think its really good (and with this weather at the moment very topical as well!)
Unlike some in this country I don’t hold with the belief that the BBC is a waste of money and that the TV license should be abolished, I think that the BBC gives good value.
Have a go, and see what you think!
