WMO issued its annual statement on the State of the Global Climate ahead of World Meteorological Day on 23 March 2017. It is based on multiple international datasets maintained independently by global climate analysis centres and information submitted by dozens of WMO Members National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and Research Institutes and is an authoritative source of reference.
