MOST POPULOUS COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD TO STILL NOT HAVE A WEBSITE FOR THEIR NATIONAL METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION/AGENCY

According (mostly) to the data from the World Meteorological Organization, 158 of the 193 independent nations have a national (governmental) meteorological organization/agency, like the National Weather Service (U.S.), Deutscher Wetterdienst (Germany) or Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (Mexico).

Many of these countries either have had wars (including civil wars) within their boundaries or limit Internet communication (in the case of North Korea, severely). In the case of Cambodia, the link to their meteorological office was non-functional. Some other countries have meteorological websites but with very limited information (such as Mali).

In most cases, where there are no forecasts provided by a nation's national meteorological agency, a private company (from outside the country) will provide a forecast online (somewhere). However, these private companies almost never issue warnings.
