29 September 2020

There is less than one month to go until the Royal Meteorological Society’s annual event for weather and climate enthusiasts returns as an online virtual event on Saturday 17 October - WeatherLive: Past, Present and Future.

This event is an annual highlight in the Society’s calendar and extra special this year as we celebrate our 170th anniversary. WeatherLive 2020 will take a look back and reflect on changes that have occurred in weather and climate over the last two centuries, before looking to the future and what we can expect from a changing climate. This unique event will also highlight how improvements in our ability to observe and forecast the weather has developed our meteorological understanding over time.

Dr Chris Brierley, Associate Professor of Climate Science at the University College London will give the first presentation on ‘Changing Climate: Scientific Understanding and Human Impact’. His talk will delve into the history of climate science, the Anthropocene and climate projections.

Tyler Roys, a meteorologist at AccuWeather, specialising in European Forecasting, will present on ‘The Evolution of Communicating the Modern Forecast’. Tyler will talk about how the advancement of weather data and technology over the last three centuries have shaped the communication of weather forecasts today.

Prof Ted Shepherd, Grantham Professor of Climate Science, University of Reading will look at the ‘Links between Extreme Weather and Climate Change’. 

All three talks will be followed by a panel discussion where audience members will be invited to contribute and ask questions via the virtual platform.

The event will end with the announcement of the winners from the Weather and Young Photographer of the Year 2020 competition, in association with AccuWeather.
