The Hong Kong Observatory's tropical cyclone warnings for shipping are issued about one and a half hours after the time of observation. They incorporate additional information derived from surface and upper-air data and may therefore be slightly different from the real-time satellite or radar-based positions given in the hourly bulletins for public.

The uncertainties, based on average errors, of the latest analysed position and 24, 48 and 72-hour forecast positions are of the order of 30, 150, 250 and 350 kilometres respectively.
