Get your forecasts on the go with the official Met Office weather application
As the UK’s national meteorological service, the Met Office provides the most accurate and reliable weather forecasts on TV and radio, in print, and online. Now, you can get our UK forecasts wherever you go with the Met Office Windows Phone 8 application.

** Please note, there is a known bug on the WindowsPhone8 which will impact the map function only of the Met Office app and may cause it to stop working. Between December 28 and midnight (23:59) on December 31, the map function will be unable to display the normal 5-day map view. The standard 5-day Weather view is unaffected and full functionality will be restored from January 1 2014. **

Features: 
• 5-day UK forecasts 
• National severe weather warnings 
• Daily weather maps 
• Save and access your favourite locations 
• Three-hourly forecasts out to five days ahead 
• Probability of precipitation 
• UV forecast maps 
• Feels like temperature 
• Interactive weather maps 
• More detailed weather warning information
• Live Tiles

Please note the map layers will work best over 3G or WiFi. Please check our website www.metoffice.gov.uk for more information about our services and application updates.

    Ok not a bad app but needs an update. To get to view the weather map you have to pin the app to start screen but it only shows info on the wide tile. I can pin my location that shows info on the medium tile but then you can't access the weather map! So overall needs some work but has potential. Tiles need to show more info other than just a cloud or sun.

    Good app needs an explanation for all the symbols. And a post code finder the auto location has me 4 miles away from where I actually am

    After extended use I believe this may be the best weather app for the UK. The interface is excellent once you get used to it. However the live tile is rubbish, ugly and fails to update, also has no display options. Poor live tile. Regarding the bloody annoying self advertising which looks plain ugly in an otherwise attractive app, I would far rather pay a small fee contributing to the apps development. Really hope the Met Office persevere with this as the mobile phone is an excellent platform for a useful weather app. Hope they read feedback and consider updates rather than just letting it fester.

    Mainly good but it has completely crashed my phone a couple of times in the last few weeks. Once more and it is history
