John Kettley, the weather forecaster

John Kettley is a weather forecaster on TV. We wanted him to tell us about the way they receive the information about the weather.

He says that an awful lot of preparation goes on at their headquarters. All the information including ground-based observation, satellite information, radar pictures goes into the super-computer.

Their team of forecasters handle that information. And then they come to a conclusion for the next 24–48 hours or so.

As an example, John gives the weather forecast for the next few days. He starts up in the north. Tokyo: round about 18–19 degrees and missing most of the rain. Nagasaki, though, will get the rain; temperatures about 13 degrees. In China and Korea it is very warm too. Beijing: about 27 degrees, with most of the rain clearing away by the end of the week.

Over into India now, plenty of hot sunshine there, but with the showers in Sri-Lanka.
