Seen the forecast on the website and have to say, I don't mind the new look at all. Not ideal for sure, but still preferable to the old style.

These first two seem fine to me, at least on the Player.





However, this one's bad. I never understood the difference between rain, hail, sleet and snow icons on Met Éireann's forecasts, on both TV and their website.



The temperature map on television screen has no contrast like on the website.

Yeah, I thought it was fine online and on TV too.
But that red outfit?

I'm not a fan of the general map with a cloud with three bits of rain coming out of it. It looks childish and lazy. Although I believe this was on the last graphics too. Other than that I can't say anything bad about new graphics.

The internet him/herself has spoken, and decided the white on yellow is a AA/AAA fail with a ratio of just 1:1.8.
Let's hope the weather warms up, as can't be doing with all this squinty eye - particularly for these skinny single digit temperatures.

Saw the rainfall radar tonight for the first time. Looks to have been upgraded. Also the topography map is a bit better if I'm not mistaken?

An improvement overall, they just need to work on a few icons which look like a 2 year old drew them with a box of crayons. But then so did the beeb's ones back in the day.

Their studio (not sure if it's in RTÉ or Glasnevin) also needs an upgrade to HD. Noticeable drop in quality and blurring during the weather.

The BBC ones were simple (though how complex did they need to be?) but also very readable. Classic icons in my opinion.

Oh I agree. I even had this when I was a kid, a plastic poster of the UK&I with stickers of those same icons you could put on

I hope this is not the new norm, and they were just having technical difficulties or Siobhan forgot her outfit!

No weather forecaster after six o'clock news, just voice over..

Whatever the hiccup was, we still got the weather.
