    Use it or lose it.

  11. Tim Barnaby UNITED KINGDOM

    The Met Office is the only really accurate weather forecasting body and with the BBC getting their information straight from ensures accurate BBC weather forecasting which is what you expect and want from the best broadcaster.

    A less accurate forecast would downgrade the corporation as they would be seen as second rate, not getting the best and most accurate source of information.

  12. Gordon Wilson

    We must keep control of UK institutions.

  13. Margaret Langstaff UNITED KINGDOM

    Think the BBC weather do I good job.

    Why change when there is no need for it.

  15. Margaret Langstaff UNITED KINGDOM

    The BBC weather do a first class service & have done for years. Why change when there is no need. I expect it is as usual down to money, say no more!

  16. Ann Edwards

    The Met Office are experienced and pretty accurate with their forecasts – why change?

  17. n. stokes UNITED KINGDOM

    UK’s weather is unique as such should be supplied from within UK

  18. June UNITED KINGDOM

    Why change what is first class and unbeatable?

  19. A. Kelly UNITED KINGDOM

    The Met office should retain the weather forecast as they are a national institution.

  20. Peter Collins UNITED KINGDOM

    The Met Office models are optimised for the UK area. They also have a finer resolution in the UK and European area. Would a forecast operation based in a far off foreign country invest large sums of money in improving their models accuracy for thistles country? I very much doubt it just to satisfy the needs of one contract. If awarding the contract is in order to save money then keep The UK Met Office, look closely at the number of broadcasts provided 24/7 and reduce the army of forecasters and presenters both nationally and regionally.
