The BBC’s Centenary was last year and they celebrated widely with lots of programmes, exhibitions and talks throughout the year.  In 2023 we have the Centennials of BBC Wales and BBC Scotland and also a 100 years of weather bulletins.  So, what was the weather like on the day the BBC began its weather reports?

The BBC obtained weather reports from the Met Office and the forecast for Monday 26 March 1923 was:

Pressure continues high on the Continent and there is a deep depression north of the Azores which however does not appear likely to approach very near to the British Isles during the next 24 hours. The Weather will be mainly fair, and rather warm during the day with southeasterly to southerly winds, fresh to strong at times on our Western Coasts.
