Jim Bacon explains how he forecasts the weather

Jim Bacon from Weatherquest, the independent forecasters based in Norwich, explains how they go about compiling a weather report.

He describes how they predict what's going to happen and also why it is so hard knowing what the British weather will do.

The agricultural nature of Norfolk means that many people's livelihoods are dependant on the weather and the personalised forecasts provided by Weatherquest play a vital role in their day-to-day business.
