A new look for ITV Weather was launched on Monday 3rd October 2016 as part of a new contract agreement with the Met Office. The First ITV company to use the new graphics were STV on 22 August 2016.
The Met Office has been providing weather services to ITV for over 25 years, and has worked with ITV on the new look weather graphics, which launched on air across ITV’s national, regional, and Good Morning Britain bulletins.
Michael Jermey, ITV’s Director of News and Current Affairs, said: “We are pleased to be extending our established working relationship with the Met Office, who continue to provide the highest quality and most accurate weather forecasts for our audiences. The new look weather service we have developed which is on air from today means even more detailed forecasts for our audiences across the UK.”
The new ITV graphics see the traditional graphics and symbols of previous broadcasts being replaced with more lifelike high resolution maps. These, combined with animated weather effects and a detailed local breakdown across the UK will help the audience understand what to expect hour-by-hour through the day.
Further coverage will be added to this page soon.
Currently the sponsorship of ITV national weather forecasts is covered by Fischer Future heat in Scotland, while in England and wales is SSE.
