Changes to Defra's Air Quality Forecasting Service

News published: 31/03/2014

Defra are delighted to announce that we will be working in partnership with the Met Office to deliver a new and improved air quality forecasting service. Changes to the service will take effect from Tuesday 1st April 2014.

Improvements to the service include 5 day forecasts enabling earlier warning of air pollution episodes.  Other changes include more detailed maps and local searching by postcode and saving of a favourite location; making forecasts more relevant to individual users.

For details about how the service will be changing, please read our guide: Changes to Defra's Air Quality Forecasting from 1st April 2014

Defra look forward to working closely with the Met Office to deliver a service that provides accurate and informative forecasts to the public in a clear and accessible way.

Defra would like to put on record our thanks to Ricardo-AEA who have delivered air quality forecasting services to Defra for a number of years and will continue to support dissemination of the new forecast service.
