Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
If you read the post immediately before yours, then fitting a signal amplifier may be of no help whatsoever, in fact depending on your predicted reception (a full postcode is needed to look at that) you may end up up with too much signal which could give you a host of other problems.
IF this was due to the unusual weather conditions then all you need to do is retune again.
You could try a manual tune for UHF C47 (there has been no reduction in power).
If manual tuning isn't possible , try the following -
Unplug the aerial and do a full automatic retune, this should clear all previous tuning as nothing will be found.
This doesn't work on some devices and you'll have to do a reset, see you manual. You may need to reschedule any recordings.
Plug the aerial back in a repeat the automatic retune.

According to the Freeview Coverage checker there is a "Live issue" which could be affecting reception. The BBC Transmitter checker says the transmitter currently has reported faults although the only detail it provides is for the 10th October. Whilst the transmitter isn't currently listed for "Planned Engineering" it appears there may well still be an ongoing fault if you are still having reception problems.
You need to provide a full postcode to readily get the most accurate up-to-date information.
