Forecasts extended to seven days ahead
Responding to public demand, we've extended our routine location forecasts from five to seven days ahead.
A week is a natural period of time for planning and many of us start to plan for the weekend early in the week. Now around 7,500 locations across the UK, and a similar number overseas, benefit from this extension to seven days.
The first phase of the development included the Met Office website, mobile website and the webmaster widget. Our new app, Met Office Weather, also includes the seven-day forecasts so you can start planning your weekend now!
