Joanne Walker Senior Meteorological Officer and her team in Met Éireann have recently put together a new accessible webpage within Met Éireann’s Website.

The page contains National Weather Forecasts as well as Localised Forecasts.

It also contains a 7-day Outlook with links to full day forecasts broken down by the hour all contained in an accessible table.

We at NCBI are delighted to have advised a Team who were already extremely well informed of Web Principles and Practices when it comes to accessibility on the World Wide Web.

We hope in future that all websites would take as much consideration for people who use Screen Readers and Magnification Software.

Met Éireann has placed a link on the Footer of their webpage for the accessible forecast. Please find a direct link below.

Once again, we would like to thank Joanne and her Team for taking the time to make this important information available, and we hope you will visit the page and make regular use of it.
