Hong Kong Observatory organises training course on weather observation
(6 August 2014)

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

The course aims to enhance the participants' understanding of weather conditions. It is particularly useful for those engaging in outdoor activities to respond adequately to weather changes. The course will also cover proverbs relating to weather observations. HKO's lecturers will guide the participants to appreciate the wisdom in the proverbs and their regional limitations for proper applications. 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 and weather report coding. 

The course will consist of two sessions, which will be held on October 11 and 18 from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the Hong Kong Museum of History and the Hong Kong Observatory headquarters respectively. Both sessions will be conducted in Cantonese, and the fee is $120 per person. 

Those interested can read the details and download the application form (in Chinese only) from or call 1878 200, followed by keying in 7-5-2 after the language selection, to obtain the form by fax.
