There has been media interest following a call from Jersey Tourism for the BBC to include the Channel Islands on national weather forecasts.
To clarify our position, the Met Office supplies weather services to the BBC, including the data on which the forecasts are based, on screen presenters and forecasting services across BBC output on TV, radio and online. The BBC make editorial decisions about the areas covered in Network weather forecasts.
Jersey Tourism have also claimed that daily weather information supplied by them for inclusion in newspapers are sometimes not printed as supplied. The Met Office is not responsible for the collection or dissemination of this weather data.
