Since 2007, the WMO Commission for Climatology (CCl) has maintained the Archive of World Weather and Climate Extremes: wmo.asu.edu. This Archive contains the official records for global and regional extremes for temperature and other weather variables. When a new record extreme occurs, an international panel of experts evaluates the data associated with the extreme and recommends whether or not it should be included in the Archive.
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) and the US National Weather Service International Activities Office has launched a 3D-Printed Automatic Weather Station (3D-PAWS) initiative with support from the USAID...
In early 2018, the Agence Nationale de l’Aviation Civile et de la Météorologie (ANACIM) in Senegal was able to improve its weather and climate information service thanks to the installation of new studio equipment and staff training provided by the United Kingdom Voluntary Cooperation Programme (UK VCP).
The Permanent Committee for Meteorology held a meeting at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo, Egypt, from 22 to 24 April to focus on developing an Arab Strategy...
The WMO Commission for Agricultural Meteorology (CAgM) held its quadrennial session from 18 to 20 April in Incheon, Republic of Korea. Hosted by the Korea Meteorological Administration, the focus of the session was on improving weather and climate services for farmers and the agricultural sector in order to boost food security and sustainable development. Discussions centred on balancing the food needs of a growing global population while minimizing the impact of climate change on agriculture and reducing greenhouse emissions from agriculture.
A new analysis released in July by the Food and Agriculture Organization and more than 100 collaborating scientists projects that by 2050 climate change will have altered the productivity of many of the planet's marine and freshwater fisheries, affecting the livelihoods of millions of the worlds' poorest people.
Dr Antonio Divino Moura of Brazil was nominated for the International Meteorological Organization (IMO) Prize for his outstanding work in meteorology and climatology and scientific research. He will receive the award at a ceremony in 2019.
Farmers in remote rural areas of Peru and the Andean region face climate-induced hazards that threaten their livelihoods. Harvests lost to frost and drought directly translate into food insecurity. Since 2012, the Climandes project (Servicios climáticos para el desarrollo) joins forces to provide accessible and understandable weather and climate information to help exposed populations increase their resilience and thrive despite changing climate conditions.
Since becoming a World Meteorological Centre (WMC) in May 2017, the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has substantially increased the amount of weather prediction data it makes available free of charge to WMO Members. The additional data enables a more comprehensive view of atmospheric conditions as predicted by ECMWF, including near-surface weather conditions, and will help users make better assessments of weather-related risks out to day 10.
