  15. Met Office loses BBC contract

    It seems that the predicted minima on cold nights have gone way down since the new app was released. BBC/MetO have historically had a tendency to underestimate the diurnal variation here in Reading (both day and night time temperatures) but the night time predictions have now suddenly swung the other way. For example, on Wednesday night they predicted a low of -5 here, corrected that evening to -4 but it didn't go below -2, even at the university, which is usually colder than the town centre. -3 is predicted for tonight but I wouldn't be surprised if we don't even have an air frost. Has anyone else noticed this?
