How can weather affect DAB reception?

DAB reception is rarely disrupted by high-pressure weather conditions, but under some circumstances, signals from very distant transmitters can cause reception to break up or be lost for periods of time. If you suspect this - particularly if you are also getting interference on FM - wait until the weather changes.

Current weather conditions can be checked on the BBC weather website.
