About this Website
This webpage provides hourly weather forecast for 7 days of the main hiking trails in Hong Kong to facilitate users in planning their trips. Upon a hiking route is selected, the approximate time required for the trip and the on-route hourly weather forecast will be calculated. Meanwhile, the Observatory also collaborated with the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) to provide weather information at various popular hiking hotspots. Upon scanning the weather information QR code located at the information board of the country parks, hikers can obtain the latest weather information, including 2-hour rainfall and 1-hour lightning nowcast of nearby hiking routes. This webpage also displays the locations of these QR codes and provides weather forecast for major hiking trails near these locations.
