We aim to make our website accessible to as many people as possible.
This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers.
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:
- From the forecast page choose Settings from the top right of the page;
- In the Units of measurement section, under Temperature, check the High-contrast colours... checkbox;
- Select Save to apply the changes.
Note: this does not apply to the 'heat map' style temperature maps.

Subtitles for videos
We currently do not provide subtitles for our video forecasts, however, if you access our videos through our YouTube channel there is an option to click the small ‘Subtitles/closed captions' option on the bottom right hand side of the screen. This will bring up YouTube generated subtitles.
