Due to the impact of the coronavirus, Carol will now deliver the latest forecast news at 27 and 57 minutes past the hour.

A statement from the show’s official Twitter page reads: “Times are changing.

“Weather in #BBCBreakfast has temporarily moved to 27 and 57 past the hour due to the impact of Covid19.

“You can still download the BBC weather app for weather whenever you want it.”

One Twitter user commented: “I really think our local news is more important than the weather!!”

Carol replied, clarifying: “The weather isn’t replacing local news T x.”

The person in question added: “I realise that, what I meant was we could do without a weather report and still keep the local news which includes a weather update.”

“Schedules have been changed because of the impact of Covid19,” the weather reporter replied.

“Which manager thought this was a good idea? #stayathome so I’d say weather is less important!”

The BBC star responded saying her schedule change means there are “actually fewer weather reports”.

Today, the weather star brought some good news to the nation by announcing it could be the “warmest day of the year so far” this Sunday.

The news comes in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, where citizens across the world are currently in lockdown in a bid to combat the disease.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson put a lockdown into place earlier this month as the deadly disease continues to spread in the UK.
