Weather Photos of Northern Lantau
The Hong Kong Observatory recently installed a camera at the Tai Lam Chung Terminal Doppler Weather Radar Station to capture weather photos overlooking northern Lantau. The real-time weather photos are shown at the Observatory's "Regional Weather in Hong Kong" webpage (http://www.weather.gov.hk/en/wxinfo/ts/index_webcam.htm) and PDA webpage (http://www.weather.gov.hk/en/wxinfo/ts/index_webcam.htm) to facilitate the public, tourists and general aviators to better plan their journey to Lantau. Photos taken between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. are displayed and updated every 15 minutes.
