Jesen in zima bosta slabi?


"Veste, takšno vreme smo napovedali že decembra, zame to ni nikakršno presenečenje. Smo namreč v kitajskem letu lesenega konja, in pričakovati je bilo leto nesreč, poplav, tudi potresov," pravi Dušan Kaplan z Blok, ki že vrsto let opazuje in preučuje ljudske modrosti, tudi njene povezave z vremenom.

World Weather Open Science Conference Assesses Future Challenges


The World Weather Open Science Conference, attended by more than 1,000 meteorologists, forecasters, social scientists and application developers from over 50 countries, has laid the foundations to face future challenges posed by more extreme weather hazards.

Meteorologists to make major push for more accurate, long-term and useful weather forecasts over the coming decade


Scientific advances on climate change have been grabbing the headlines this year. Meanwhile, a quiet revolution has been underway in the tightly linked field of meteorology.
Eager to move weather forecasting skill rapidly forward over the next few years, some 1 000 scientists and experts are meeting in Montreal from 16 to 21 August for the first World Weather Open Science Conference to chart the future course of scientific research and its potential for generating new and improved weather services.
"Thanks to major investments in research and observations, today’s five-day forecast is as reliable as the two-day forecast of 20 years ago," said Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization.

Global campaign launched to improve weather and climate services for small island developing states (SIDS)


A global campaign to improve weather and climate services for all small island developing states was launched today with the support of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Digicel Pacific.

Europe’s climate continues to change


The period from 2004-2013 was the warmest decade on record in Europe. Many other changes significant for Europe have been observed across the climate system, including warming oceans, rising sea level and shrinking snow cover, ice sheets, sea ice and glaciers.

The World Weather Open Science Conference 2014 (WWOSC2014): The Weather: what's the outlook?


"The Weather: What's the Outlook," is the theme of the World Weather Open Science Conference 16-21 August, bringing together the entire weather science and user communities for the first time.

Latin America Climate Services Workshop


A regional workshop aimed at strengthening the provision of climate services like seasonal outlooks and El Nino forecasts and tailoring them to user needs in Latin America takes place in San Jose, Costa Rica 28-30 July.

NOAA and JMA: June is hottest June on record


The globally averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces for June 2014 was the highest for June since record keeping began, driven by record sea surface temperatures, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Japan Meteorological Agency's Tokyo Climate Center. May was also the hottest May on record.

Aeronautical Meteorological Services Face the Future _ Meeting focused on efficiency and safety as passenger numbers soar


The future provision of meteorological services vital to the safety and efficiency of the rapidly growing and globalizing airline industry was discussed at a major gathering in Montreal, Canada. Challenges such as volcanic ash and the impact of so-called space weather were also high on the agenda.

WMO and WHO Establish Joint Office for Climate and Health


The World Health Organization and the World Meteorological Organization have joined forces to tackle the increasing risks to human health posed by weather and climate hazards such as extreme temperatures, floods, droughts and tropical cyclones.
A new WHO/WMO Climate and Health office has been established under the auspices of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) to promote the coordinated development and use of climate services to improve public health. It will increase awareness, build capacity, and connect meteorological services with experts in the health sector in an active partnership for climate adaptation and risk management.

WMO Update: Prepare for El Nino


There is a 60% likelihood of an El Nino being fully established between June and August, increasing to 75-80% for the October to December period, according to an El Nino Update issued by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Based on advice from National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, many governments have already started preparing for the arrival of El Nino, which is associated with regional-scale drought and flood situations in different parts of the world and has a warming influence on global average surface temperatures.

Upgrade for World Weather Information Service


The World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) highly successful World Weather Information Service website has been revamped and upgraded to a more modern and user-friendly format.
Developed and operated by the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) on behalf of the WMO, the website provides official weather forecasts for 1 719 cities around the world supplied by 133 WMO Members. It is available in ten languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Climate Services for Action in Malawi


Malawi has embarked on an ambitious drive to integrate weather and climate information into its national health planning in a move which could radically improve surveillance and management of diseases like malaria, diarrhea and malnutrition, which are all influenced by weather and climate.

Spain hosts WMO Sand and Dust Storm Operational Centre


A new international centre has been established to improve predictions and provide operational forecasts of sand and dust storms which have a major impact on the economy, the environment and people's health and which are expected to worsen as a result of climate change and land degradation.

EU reports lowest greenhouse gas emissions on record


The European Union's greenhouse gas emissions continued to fall in 2012, as a 1.3 % decrease cut emissions to 19.2 % below 1990 levels, according to official data from the European Environment Agency (EEA). This puts the EU within reach of its 20 % reduction target, with eight years to go until the 2020 deadline.

Greater Horn of Africa Climate Outlook Forum assesses coming rainy season


The Greater Horn of Africa Climate Outlook Forum has issued its seasonal outlook for the forthcoming June to August rainy season, factoring in the likely development of an El Nino event which may have significant climatic impacts over parts of Eastern Africa. June to August constitutes an important rainfall season over the northern sector and the western parts of the equatorial sector of the Greater Horn of Africa (GHA) region. The regional consensus climate outlook indicates increased likelihood of near normal to below normal rainfall over most parts of the northern and equatorial sectors except for parts of north western Ethiopia; south-eastern Uganda and much of South Sudan which have increased likelihood of receiving near normal to above normal rainfall. The rest of the region is expected to remain dry as usual at this time of year
