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.
Most modern web browser allow you to add RSS feeds as a browser favorite or bookmark folder. Bookmark a link from the list below or open the link an choose 'subscribe'.
A news reader is software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added from multiple sources. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
Copy the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader.

You may not display the RSS Content in a manner that does not permit successful linking to, redirection to or delivery of the applicable Met Office Site web page. You may not insert any intermediate page, splash page or other content between the RSS link and the applicable Met office Site web page.
