New Met Eireann website.

Seems to me that the new website gives less info than the old one. No 3 hour, no weathermaps, no predictive animations, no rainfall radar. Poor icon based maps. Why?

There is a rainfall radar, or should I say, there should be one. It fell off the front page this morning.

This should keep us going while the radar is down, make your desktop or laptop browser more elongated to see the whole page (pull in the sides)

Does / will the new website have anything like these graphics? I can't find an isobar / pressure system chart anywhere on the new one, and only managed to get this one because it hasn't been removed from the mobile site yet:

Everyone just has to chill. They're clearly having teething issues with the new site and apps. They'll get there. As for those pleading for the old site to return... things have to move forward at some point. The old design was functional but dated, moving to a design that is more cross platform orientated does make sense. Hopefully they'll get it back and reliable in the next few days.

Agree totally with this, it's just the mass removal of content which is frustrating. This is the internet after all, not Aertel - why have they seemingly decided to drop almost all graphical elements and switch to a text-only format?

Would you go away with that common sense

Didn't you know that all change is bad.









Personally, I like it.
A few issue that they will no doubt fix. It is a complete overhaul afterall.

They should hv left both versions of site up as in when you go to site you get new one but then at top there's a message "if you prefer to use the old met site click Here"

Then warn that old site will be no longer available after 1st June or something and then they can teethe all they like
