The Met Office is now offering personalised weather forecasts

The Met Office is now pumping out personalised weather forecasts down your mobile phone. By using a WAP handset or the basic text messaging service SMS, yachtsmen can dial up a forecast and then get updates delivered automatically.

The service is payable on subscription with an on average cost of 20p a message (minimum 10 (pounds sterling)).

The localised forecasts cover an area approximately 10 kilometres offshore around the UK and around 25 kilometres out at key resorts and ports.
