    Yes, most national presenters are trained or qualified meteorologists. The vast majority of regional presenters (in the BBC) come from a more journalistic background, though some have a strong interest in/understanding of the weather. In a situation like this though, I guess the issue with some broadcasts is that the model data used for graphics can be up to 12-15 hours old, with several of the broadcasts pre-recorded earlier too. While this is still very useful for the general public, I suspect for many in here as weather enthusiasts you're probably better following posts in here, looking at the various model output that routinely comes out throughout each day etc as that will give you more up-to-date insight into what might happen for your local area.

    It's often quite easy to tell who are the proper meteorologists and those who have no real background in the weather. I remember our local presenter in Dec 2015 describing night time temps of 15/16c as "fairly mild"...

    We're pretty much at the point where TV broadcasts will offer little value in detail now - it's more down to nowcasting, watching the radar and seeing how things evolve. Likewise site-specific forecasts on websites or apps will offer limited usefulness because there is no human input and they will change with each new model run that comes in.

    I hate it when they say the weather is going to be cold, yet the temperature shown is actually the seasonal average.

    Nick, am I right to be feeling somewhat optimistic about Herts/St Albans tomorrow? It's such a roller-coaster at the moment!

    Ridiculous really that someone with such inadequate understanding of the subject should be allowed to present on it.  15-16 overnight would be my idea of "very warm".

    Met Office currently has the snow line around Watford (North London), hoping tomorrrows outputs bring that down 10-15 miles south to give many of us a chance..

    So i may only have to travel 13 miles to see some snow then!! Great!!!

    If im 100% honest its really really borderline - if your south of London then you need elevation

    if your north of london you need elevation but may still see snow - 

    places like High Wycombe - Luton / Dunstable look set here...

    I live in Dunstable!! Going to work in Tring tomorrow. Hopefully will be a scienic drive in. ?

    I don't doubt she didn't, however I am not disrespecting her or them, just that the proper Met Office Metrologists are the ones "really" in the know.

    Kings Lynn is probably a touch on the northern side, but I reckon you could still get a light covering.
