The weather is a complex thing and it is in danger because of the current situation and the effects of the longterm climat change. More heat, more storms, more rain.
The weather is such a powerful thing and the effects of extreme weather can be really terrible. You can see that nearly every day in the news. The drough in Chile and the tropical cyclone in Mozambique are just some actual examples, but there are sadly so much more.
Early warning systems are as important as never to protect lifes. But wheater forcasts are not such an easy thing! They need to be updated during the whole day and night, and all over the world, you need a lot of different informations before you can spread concrete forcasts. Most of these tests and observations are carried out by National Meteological Services as part of the WMO World Weather Watch. They are responsible for spreading this informations after that, so everyone has access to that. This is really important, because the weather on the whole world is connectect.
As you can see, it is difficulte but even more important. A lot of lifes can be saved with early wheater forcasts!
To focus on the importants of that and also on the weather problems because of the climat change, we celebrate the world meteorological day at the 23. of march.
The moto this year is in my opinion a good summary and also a really good appeal:
ACT WEATHER-READY AND CLIMATE-SMART!
Keep that in your mind!
