Changes to the Met Office website

Met Office Web Site

6 March 2012 - Twelve months ago we asked visitors to our website how we could improve it. Six months ago we launched these improvements as a Beta website and gathered more feedback on how we could improve navigation, content and general site usability. We are now ready to make the transition from our old website to our new site.

Over the next three months you will notice some changes to the website, starting with the top level navigation today, 6th March.

This organises information on our website to reflect our core areas of operation:

  • Public - where you can find freely accessible information on weather and climate including more detail about us and weather warnings.
  • Products and services - where you can find information about the full range of products, services and support we provide to industry, government, foreign countries and international organisations.
  • Research - where you can find information about our scientific research, our scientists and published papers.

Initially this new navigation will be merged with our current website. However, this is only a temporary measure to ensure that no links within the site are lost and to minimise any potential disruption to you. It will be replaced by the completely revised website as soon as possible.

We will post regular updates on progress and what changes you can expect to see next. In the meantime please accept our apologies for any temporary inconvenience or disruption caused.
