World Meteorological Day History

When the World Meteorological Organization Convention went into operation on March 23, 1950, it became the United Nations’ specialized organization for climatology, operative hydrology, and other geophysics sciences, which included a wide range of topics.

Annually, the World Meteorological Organization selects a new topic for World Meteorological Day. The World Meteorological Organization has a significant impact on people’s health and well-being. Because of this, its role is critical in securing food, freshwater, and transportation supplies.

About World Meteorological Organization

There are 193 Individual Countries and Affiliates in the United Nations specialized organization. To promote the transmission of weather information throughout country boundaries, the IMO was created in 1873.

As a specialized organization of the United Nations, the World Meteorological Organization was created in 1950. Functional hydrological and associated geophysical sciences, as well as weather conditions, should be a primary emphasis of this work. Ever since inception, the World Meteorological Organization has performed a unique and significant role in ensuring the safety and well-being of mankind.

Since its establishment, it has fostered a closer relationship between the National Meteorology and Hydrogeology Department and the many applications of meteorology. There is no way we can deny the fact that the organization performs a prominent role in worldwide order to implement and preserve the environment via its Programs.

World Meteorological Day 2024 Theme: Yet to be announced

World Meteorological Day 2023 Theme: “The Future of Weather, Climate and Water across Generations”

Theme of World Meteorological Day 2022: “Early Warning and Early Action”.

There is a distinct theme or motto for each year’s celebration of the day. The subject in 2021 was “Oceans and our climate and weather”. Most people think about what’s going on in the environment whenever it pertains to weather patterns. Oceans are a part of this larger picture, too. The oceans contain over 70 percent of the planet’s surface, and therefore have a significant impact on climate change.

Every day, experts and meteorologists from the nation’s National Meteorology and Hydrogeology Department keep an eye on the ocean to see how it is developing. While the WMO’s emphasis has been on linking oceans, climate, and weather as part of a larger Earth System, this year’s theme honors that connection.

World Meteorological Day 2024 Quotes

  • “Wind, earthquake, fire meteorology, seismology, physics pass in review, as we have been reviewing the natural forces of evolution; the Lord was not in them. Afterwards, a stirring, an awakening in the organ of the brain, a voice which asks “What does thou here?”  (Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington)
  • “Meteorology has ever been an apple of contention, as if the violent commotions of the atmosphere induced a sympathetic effect on the minds of those who have attempted to study them.” (Joseph Henry)
  • “Of all the departments of science no one seems to have been less advanced for the last hundred years than that of meteorology.” (Thomas Jefferson)
  • “We have learned that there is an endocrinology of elation and despair, a chemistry of mystical insight, and, in relation to the autonomic nervous system, a meteorology and even… an astro-physics of changing moods.” (Aldous Leonard Huxley)
  • “Perhaps some day in the dim future it will be possible to advance the computations faster than the weather advances and at a cost less than the saving to mankind due to the information gained. But that is a dream.” (Lewis Fry Richardson)

  2. As a retired employee of India Meteorological Department (Director designation) I am glad to note the theme of WMO day for this year. The general public take weather easy and do not know how much physics has been included in meteorology today. Many are blissfully ignorant of many facts of the atmosphere. The importance of understanding weather a little more among the public needs emphasis.
