Weather forecasts are becoming more accurate and it's partly thanks to scientists in Portsmouth. They've been making vital components for a new satellite which has been launched into space. Hannah Gurney reports.
In her report Hannah spoke to Ralph Cordey, the Head of Science from Astrium and Stewart Turner from the Met Office.
Engineers in Portsmouth are hoping their new satellite will be launched safely into space later today. The Astrium equipment should help predict the weather more accurately.
The launch is taking place at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the deserts of Kazakhstan.
