World Meteorological Day is on the 23rd of March. It was established on the 23rd March, 1950 and since then member nations celebrate this day. on this day conferences, exhibitions and symposia are organized.
The main motive is to attract people towards the weather. some prestigious prizes are also distributed on this day. the International Meteorological Organization prize is one of it. Many countries issue postage stamps to celebrate the day. It is however just a day that is observed but is not a holiday.
Various issues regarding the weather are discussed in the conferences held on this day. With the ever-increasing population, there are so many things that we are facing as the weather is changing drastically and negatively due to these changes. heavy rains, droughts, cyclones, melting of glaciers are few of the issues that we are facing due to the things that are affecting the weather negatively.
Urbanization is also affecting the weather as it is changing for bad reasons and is also leading to a high rise in the sea level. the weather in spite of affecting our so many things itself is getting affected and is calling for our help.
We need to be conscious of our actions and protect the weather so that we can help yourself and protect yourself from the bad effects of the negative effects of the weather. By not cutting down the trees, conserving the water, not polluting the air by use of CFC, hazardous chemicals and releasing the smoke in air, treating water before disposing it in water or opting for a zero wastage life we can protect the weather and let it remain pure for the coming generations as it will be our gift to them.
More than being a gift it is our responsibility to take care of the weather before it passes it on the future generations.
The weather has so much of effects on our daily lives rather than just on the whole of the planet Earth., rather it affects each and everything around us. Now if something affects us so much we should first need to know what the weather is?
Weather is the state of atmosphere that describes the degree to which it is cold or hot, wet or dry, calm or stormy. It refers to the day to day temperature of the place. We all have that habit of checking the weather and planning for things. Suppose if it is a bright sunny day we may decide on applying an extra dollop of sunscreen but if it is dry and windy we prefer to carry our shades and dress aptly.
Thus the importance of weather in our daily lives cannot be denied. It will not be an exaggeration to even claim that weather affects all our lives and so many other things. The weather is something that controls our food, dress, mood, relations and few more things. In hot humid weather, a glass of chilled cold drink or some bites of popsicle is desired.
Also wearing a cool airy dress brings relief. we need things that can cool us and not get disturbed due to the hot weather. We get irritated and lose our calm
