  • Based on the information and scientific climate assessment products from the world's most recognized scientific professional centers with which our institution has cooperative relationships, are provided estimates for the medium and long term forecast of the expected situations for the coming months following the date of each bulletin broadcast.
  • The last columns of this bulletin relate to the coverage of various information related to scientific achievements in the field of meteorology or the climate in particular, not only in our country, special events such as "International Meteorological Day", results of scientific research work or different subjects realized by students under the scientific leadership of the department.

Certain scientific areas relevant to the assessment of Climate as a national asset and in the function of certain meteorological situations or evidenced events will be a concluding part of this bulletin, intertwined with considerations on the effectiveness of the use of meteorological information and climate to have a sustainable and progressive development of our country's economy to ensure better welfare for the people or minimize the consequences of extreme weather events.
