HKO launches "Weather on a Special Day" Service (19 June 2003)


The Hong Kong Observatory announced today (19 June 2003) that a new service "Weather on a Special Day" has been launched in its website. Members of the public who wish to find out the weather information of a special day in the past, be it the son's birthday, or the daughter's wedding day, can now have the information at their fingertips. Simply input the date in a specific webpage, weather information such as the temperature range, duration of sunshine, the amount of rainfall and any tropical cyclone warning/rainstorm warning issued, will be displayed. One can also create a special greeting card using the webpage and put in words appropriate for the occasion. The data period spans more than 100 years from 1885 to 2002, apart from a break from 1940 to 1946 due to World War II.
