Daily overview makes no sense
There can be a 27% chance of rain for one hour during a 24 hour period and the entire day's summary is listed as rain
Android

Rubbish - daily symbols have become a joke. Some day 15% probability of rain in 1 hour on the day and BBC ludicrously give the whole day a rain symbol. So bad I deleted it and installed met office app.

Wish you could be more accurate my cat gives a better forecast with his paw in the air!
I'm fed up of looking at the forecast for the next couple of days and within hours it's changed! Today forecast sunny intervals it's been cloudy all day! Yesterday predicted sunshine all day tomorrow Tuesday now it's forecasting rain. I think I'm going to get some seaweed as it can predict weather better than you!

Always getting it wrong
For years the BBC weather site has been inaccurate, grossly inaccurate! I'm a technophobe and I have finally stumbled across an opportunity to text my opinion. We are currently in Quarteira in Portugal and the BBC are telling us it's glorious sunshine with a temperature of 24 degrees. The reality is it's completely cloudy and I am shivering as I text. The BBC are useless in so many areas, now they can add weather forecasting to that long list! Are these people actually paid for their incompetence?

Daily forecast summaries are plain wrong. Today's summary: "dark cloud and rain". Hourly forecast: sunny all day with a 30% chance of rain for one hour.

Why is it always raining? Today's forecast is rain, yet there is only a 10 percent chance of rain at 11am, and no rain predicted for the rest of the day. As someone who works outdoors just looking at the forecast makes me depressed and hard to plan my day. Please make the headline symbol more reflective of the actual weather.

Pessimistic outlook
Even if there is a sun 11 hours but one hour of drizzle the summary page tells you it's gonna rain!

Shows wrong day!
Try this. Select an individual day eg Weds. It starts at 6 am. If you scroll through the whole day, at midnight it shows the previous day, eg Tues and not the next day, Thurs. If it can't get the days of the week correct, I think a weather forecast will be beyond it tbh.

Rubbish
This is the worst weather app available, changes regularly because it's wrong all the time!
