The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season officially concluded on 30 November. It was so active that, for the second consecutive year, it exhausted the regular list of names from WMO’s rotating...
It is recognized that there is a need to better utilize and improve the monitoring of weather and climate extremes from space. Stakeholders to pursue this objective include satellite operators, WMO Regional Climate Centres (RCCs), National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and other relevant institutes. The pivotal role to be played by WMO was the reason to give visibility of the Space-based Weather and Climate Extremes Monitoring (SWCEM) to WMO members by the Resolution 6.1(5)/4 from the Eighteenth World Meteorological Congress (Cg-18) in June 2019.

La Niña has developed for the second consecutive year and is expected to last into early 2022, influencing temperatures and precipitation. Despite the cooling influence of this naturally occurring climate phenomenon, temperatures in many parts of the world are expected to be above average because of the accumulated heat trapped in the atmosphere as a result of record high levels of greenhouse gases, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The El Niño/Southern Oscillation has a major influence on climate patterns in various parts of the world. This naturally occurring phenomenon involves fluctuating ocean temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific, coupled with changes in the atmosphere. Scientific progress on the understanding and modelling of this phenomenon has improved prediction skills to within a range of one to nine months in advance, giving society the opportunity to prepare for associated hazards such as heavy rains, floods and drought.
