Making temperatures easier to read

Some people may find the temperature graphs and symbols difficult to read due to the background colours. To change them to high-contrast:

  1. From the home page choose Customise this website, or from a forecast page choose Settings from the top right of the page;
  2. from the Units of measurement tab, under Temperature, check the High-contrast colours... checkbox;
  3. select Save to apply the changes.

Note: this does not apply to the 'heat map' style temperature maps.
