World Meteorological Day

“Sunny, with a chance of commemoration...” March 23 marks World Meteorological Day, a day commemorating the World Meteorological Organization and the work that 188 Member States Meteorological Services contribute to the understanding of air quality, climate research and forecasting. Meteorological and hydrological professionals around the world contribute to our knowledge of weather patterns, climate, air quality, pollution and particles emitted into the atmosphere. With changing climate patterns and increasing levels of airborne environmental pollutants, meteorological science is more important than ever in helping us stay informed and aware of the changes to our planet.
