STV has launched a new look weather service using innovative Met Office weather graphics.

The bulletin enables viewers to go on a colourful "weather journey" through the Scottish landscape.

Data from the newly launched Public Weather Media Service, which includes weather warnings, observations and guidance, is also used.

Sean said: "I'm so excited to be able to share with our viewers the new look weather graphics that we've been keeping under wraps until now.

"We're delighted to be continuing our relationship with the Met Office to bring viewers the latest weather graphics and the most accurate forecasts.

"In the coming weeks and months, viewers will see a lot of changes and new graphics which will make the weather forecasts more colourful and fun than ever before."

He added: "I've also worked hard to make my new forecasts the most interactive on television.

"Viewers will be able to send tweets which will occasionally appear on the maps, along with pictures from photographers on our new Flickr page. There will also be a lot of new online content.

"While I can't guarantee better weather, my new weather graphics are sure to brighten up the dullest days."

The Met Office said the graphics would "deliver fascinating weather presentations" to Scottish screens.

Head of media Tom Shapland said: "We are excited to be working with STV for another five years.

"They are the first UK broadcaster to use our new graphics software, Visual Cortex, which will deliver fascinating weather presentations to TV screens in Scotland - we hope Scottish audiences will love it.

"STV will also continue to receive our world leading forecasts and our severe weather warnings via our new flagship data service - the Public Weather Media Service - so that everyone can plan, prepare and stay safe in times of severe weather."
