Met Office 150 Year Competition

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.

    One would think that an organization that has been with us since the LIA would have a better grasp of climate.

    150 years is 150 years to long for a group with a political agenda. Time to stop funding their climate research! Private forecasters are now doing a much better job so the UK should contract the work out to the private sector with costs based on quality of performance. MET would be in the hole with that criteria!
