Weather Photographer of the Year finalists announced – vote for your favourite!

We are now seeking votes for the ‘Public’s Favourite’ photograph from our shortlisted entries for Weather Photographer of the Year 2017. There are nearly 50 stunning photos to choose from depicting weather in its widest sense - dramatic in what they depict or because of the story they tell of the impact of weather. They range from weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog or snow through to the impact of weather on humans, cities and the natural landscape.

All wining entries will be announced in the coming months

WMO ‘Summer in the City’ video series

WMO and Climate Central have launched a series of “Summer in the City” videos to explain the impact of climate change on temperatures in some of the world’s major cities. The short videos have been released in a year that is already experiencing multiple heatwaves across the globe and daily temperature records, and if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase, Earth’s average global surface temperature could rise more than 4°C by the end of the 21st century.
