A Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society

Aims and Scope

The aim of Weather is to act as a bridge between the interests of those having a professional and a general interest in the weather, as well as between meteorologists and others working in related sciences such as climatology, hydrology and geography.

Articles and regular features are written for a wide range of readers, from professional meteorologists to amateur weather observers. While technical language and mathematical content are kept to a minimum, Weather also seeks to inform and to give readers an opportunity to update their subject knowledge.

Weather is also the 'house journal' of the Society and seeks to keep the reader up-to-date with Society news and includes meeting and conference reports, a Readers' Forum series and occasional Viewpoint articles. Photographs of weather events are an important feature of the journal and the Weather Image feature provides an opportunity to analyse a satellite image or photograph. Weather Log is a summary of the weather of each month by means of meteorological data and weather maps.

Coverage includes:

  • Case studies of interesting and important weather events, both topical and historical

  • Weather observation - including the use and interpretation of satellite and radar imagery

  • Climatic change

  • Weather and climate as environmental hazards

  • Developments in weather forecasting

  • Recent advances in meteorology, climatology and oceanography

  • History of meteorology and climatology

Weather also includes regular series of articles. Examples include:

  • Historic and notable weather stations

  • Interpretation of weather maps and weather information on the web

  • Pen portraits of historic figures in meteorology
