The Met Office, through UK contributions to the World Meteorological Organisation’s Voluntary Cooperation Programme (VCP), is working to upgrade TV weather studios, located at National Meteorological Services (NMSs) across Africa.

There have been several significant technological advances in the media world in the last few years.  With digital television developments, ‘widescreen’ and high definition broadcasts are becoming increasingly commonplace across the globe. The studio upgrades will enable NMSs to continue to supply high quality broadcasts that provide essential early warning of hazardous weather over national TV networks.
