    I think if you could present Bhutan map(shape) correctly, it will help our national security…

    BBS shod start showing this type of map on TV and present like other broadcaster doing will help our public,


    Yeah lungdhar, its good point raised by you because our many citizens are unaware of existing map of BHUTAN, good idea indeed.

    Thanks for you comments. For your kind information Meteorology Division, Department of Hydro Met Services is doing the weather forecasting job but not BBS. We will soon come up with the weather forecast presenter in near future. Hope this will help general public as whole in understanding regarding the Nowcasting, daily weather forecast and seasonal forecast. (Weather forecast Unit, Meteorology Division, DHMS, MoEA)

    Please BBS come up with weather broadcasting presenter like other TV do! You can’t do it or is it something worthless? Or may be waiting for “”near”‘ future? 😛 I genuinely believe there are enough technical experts in BBS..Yeah lets do it and bring BBS to a step ahead…Regardz!

    I think the name of the places marked in the Bhutan Map are not clearly visible. Therefore it would be very helpful for us to view the name of the location & communicate about the weather forecast atleast in bit advance please.
