The Royal Meteorological Society is hosting an extreme weather conference, at the Aurora Innovation Centre in Cambridge, to explore the severe weather events and climates around the world.

The event aims to take a closer look at extreme weather – its power, its beauty, its occasional absurdity and its fragility in the face of human activity.
