RSS feeds from the Met Office

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for distributing and sharing web content. You can view news feeds from various sources in one location as soon as they're published without having to visit the website you took the feed from. The Met Office offers a range of feeds in XML format ("RSS Content") to RSS enabled browsers or news readers. The feeds contain a brief summary and a link to the full content on the website.
