Observatory launches the Tsuen Wan Automatic Weather Station
(25 April 2006)

The Tsuen Wan Automatic Weather Station, jointly built and operated by the Hong Kong Observatory and the Sik Sik Yuen sponsored Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre, was officially opened today (25 April) to provide the public with weather information for the Tsuen Wan area.

Mr. C.Y. Lam, Director of the Hong Kong Observatory, attended the celebration for the tenth anniversary of the Centre and officiated at the opening ceremony of the Tsuen Wan Automatic Weather Station. Mr. Lam said, "Tsuen Wan is a densely populated area and there is a definite need for weather information. We are glad to have the cooperation of the Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre in building an automatic weather station there. We hope the data from the station can satisfy the public need for weather information in the region."

The automatic weather station is equipped with instruments for measuring temperature, relative humidity, and rainfall. The data collected is made available to radio and television operators for broadcast and also directly to the public through such channels as the Observatory's website and Dial-a-weather service, which are handy ways for the public to plan their activities according to the latest weather conditions.

Mr. C.T. Kwok, Principal of the Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre, said, "With the operation of the automatic weather station, students can get hold of the very useful weather data and gain a better understanding of the relationship between the environment and ourselves."
