Met Office celebrates 150 years of forecasting for the Nation
Monday 1st of August 2011 is a very special day for the Met Office. We will be celebrating 150 years of forecasting for the nation, marking the anniversary of the first ever public weather forecast appearing in print.
To mark the event, the Met Office is launching a photo competition asking the public to put forward pictures which define weather moments of 2011 so far. Details of the competition, as well as a timeline of major events in forecasting over the last 15 decades, are on the Met Office website or you can find out more about our history as well.
