Celebrating our weather!

World Meteorological Day 2013

Watching the weather to protect life and property

Celebrating 50 years of World Weather Watch

Each year, on 23 March, the World Meteorological Organization, its 191 Members and the worldwide meteorological community celebrate World Meteorological Day around a chosen theme. This day commemorates the entry into force, on that date in 1950, of the WMO Convention creating the Organization. Subsequently, in 1951, WMO was designated a specialized agency of the United Nations System.

This year, the theme is “Watching the weather to protect life and property” – http://www.wmo.int/pages/publications/showcase/documents/WMD_2013_brochure_EN_final.pdf
