Hong Kong Observatory organises training course
on weather observation (6 August 2012)

The Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) will hold a weather observation training course in October. Three experienced HKO weather observers will introduce basic weather observation techniques and methods, such as classification of clouds, to the participants. Members of the public are invited to join.

The course aims to enhance participants' understanding of weather conditions. It is particularly useful for those engaging in outdoor activities to respond more intelligently to weather changes. The course will also cover proverbs relating to sky conditions and weather changes. As such wisdom is often region-specific, HKO weather observers will explain how they can be applied meaningfully. During the course, participants will also learn how to make effective use of weather information available at the HKO's website, and will be given opportunities to practise weather observation.

The course will consist of two sessions, which will be held on 13 and 27 October from 9.30am to 12.30pm at HKO Headquarters, 134A Nathan Road, Kowloon. Both sessions will be conducted in Cantonese, and the fee is $245 per person.

Those interested can read the details and download the application form (in Chinese) from or call
