Customising your home page on the Met Office beta site

The new Met Office beta website allows you to customise the content you see, the location of weather forecasts and observations and display of the homepage. To start customising, click on the customise icon in the top right hand corner of the homepage.

 Choose what content is displayed

 You can switch off content you’re not interested in by unticking the boxes in the customise panel. You can also click the x in the corner of the widget box to remove it from view.

 Choose your units

 Choose the units you’d like to see on your weather reports for temperature, wind speed, pressure and rainfall in the customise panel.

 Choose your location

 Click on ‘change’ in the five day weather forecast map to change your location, you’ll then be given the option to use your chosen location across the whole site.

 Choose your layout

 You can drag widgets around the homepage and position them where you like. You can also contract and expand widgets using the triangle icon at the top of each widget.

Choose your language

You can now opt for English, Welsh or Gaelic.

 We’d love to know how you’re finding the new website, you can leave us a comment on this post or send your feedback via our feedback form.
