ITV Weather is the national and regional forecast shown on UK terrestrial network ITV, and is provided by the Met Office (except the Channel Islands forecast, which is provided by the Jersey Meteorological Department). Bulletins are usually broadcast after every ITV News and ITV regional bulletin, although during ITV News at 6.30pm national weather is broadcast live from the news studio. Jon Mitchell is the longest serving forecaster after 31 years with ITV Weather.
The national bulletin launched on the ITV network on 13 February 1989, complimenting the previous regional arrangements whereby the separate ITV regional licence holders were responsible for providing weather forecasts themselves only for their regional franchise areas.
The national weather for ITV and STV has had commercial sponsors from the outset, as listed in the chart below. ITV Weather on Good Morning Britain and its predecessors have always had a different sponsorship deal.
