Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of World Meteorological Day

World Meteorological Day is celebrated every year to attract the attention of the world towards the changes in the weather and climate of the Earth for the safety and wellbeing of society.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) was established in Geneva, Switzerland, on this day in 1950. Consisting of 193 member countries, the organization has its roots in the Vienna International Meteorological Congress 1873. The WMO was established by the ratification of the WMO Convention, aimed at facilitating the exchange of weather information across national borders.

The following year, in 1951, the organisation became a specialised agency of the United Nations for climate, weather and water, and striving to support understanding the inextricable link between ocean, climate and weather.
