The new layout at BBC weather website. It sucks.

I think it's pretty awful. Why can't their web designers stop tweaking things?

It's not easy to get any feedback from the BEEB.

It changes because they have to do something to justify their fee

I prefer the Met Office App

Hint to BBC; instead of those monotonous paw marks to represent rain, what about something more practical like 'it's safe to hang out your washing on the line' 10 Pegs being ideal.

Yes it's a backwards move. The same 3 raindrops with white cloud showing all day has to be read via the % figure to identify whether it's likely to rain a bit, or a lot.

The old dark cloud with one or two drops was much easier to glance along the day and retain the info in the mind.

The % method doesn't easily stay as a mental if at all!

....Stay as a mental image while out...

But I see that the old dark raincloud pictograms are retained in the days ahead foreacasts at the bottom...?

  Quickbeam 06:40 04 Feb 2018

I've just downloaded the Met app, that uses % likelyhood too, but at least the cloud goes dark after 10%

I could retain the old format from a quick single glance all day while I was out. I've forgotten today's weather trend 3 times already and it's only 6.45...

I'm afraid HB is right BBC, it truly sucks!

Well I quite like it.

I too think it is awful. Also I need to do an extra click now to get my local forecast. Last time they changed it there was a feedback pop up but it hasn't appeared yet, perhaps they don't want the feedback!!

The 'old' layout appears to be back in use this morning. Thank goodness for that!
