WOW was developed by the Met Office with support from the Royal Meteorological Society and the Department for Education. The aim was to provide a hub for UK weather observations, which can help educate children about weather and encourage further growth in the UK's amateur weather observing community. Despite its UK focus, WOW has global coverage and has attracted visits from weather enthusiasts in more than 170 countries.

In November 2012 WOW won "Best Use of Cloud Services"; and "IT Project Demonstrating Most Effective Use of Collaborative Technology" at the prestigious UK IT Industry Awards.
