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.

    A very useful app, far better than the weather apps that came with the phone.

    Broken - it quits when opening the settings

    Goodish but crashes to often on my Lumia 930. Crashes every time I try to access settings.

    Update is fab, loving the weather map info on the live tile. Would just like a bit more info on the big tile alongside the cloud icon, for instance wind speed. But a big improvement! Edited to add the live tile only updates when the app is opened, which is pretty useless. 90% of the time I'm looking at an out of date weather map.

    The new release is excellent, live tile is now much better

    Met office. Latest update, which Is the first ive had in nearly 2 years, makes the live tile a joke. Uninstalled, pathetic update.

    Ah I really don't like the look of this new live tile !

    Wide Tile isn't live any more since recent update. Small tiles work but wider display which used to be more legible and carry more info does nothing useful now.

    Pathetic update. Live tile sucks, still tries to show info even when minimised and seems to feel the need to tell me that the Met Office is to do with 'weather'. Who are these guys? Come on Met, sack 'em and get somebody up to the task! And you wanna charge £1.99 for this!. Joke. How can I at the very least get back to V1.0? You have an annual budget of tens of millions and there are guys out there blowing you away working from there living room. ***.
