Barcelona 1992. The State Meteorological Agency drew up a specific support plan for the Olympic Games held in Barcelona in 1992. This Wednesday, 12 July, there will be a commemorative event to mark the 25th anniversary of this collaboration.
The commemorative events for the 25th anniversary of the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games continue. On 12 July the Catalan branch of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) celebrates the 25th anniversary of its weather support for the 1992 Olympics. This will be marked by an event at the city’s Olympic and Sports Museum.
In fact, the National Meteorological Institute (INM), completed its Meteorological Assistance Plan, which envisaged setting up the Olympic Meteorological Centre, a few years earlier in 1989. The aim was to draw up a plan that would offer some control over various competitions with regard to the weather expected when they were taking place. So a very close eye was kept on the weather forecast during the competition days.
Weather stations were set up at all the venues to monitor the weather and climatic conditions at each one. You can check out the weather during the Olympic Games here.
