| Go to text version of Sand and Dust Observation
The Hong Kong Observatory regularly receives weather reports from weather centres
in the neighbouring areas, including mainland China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, China.
The above map provides a simplified depiction of the sand and dust related weather over East Asia
based on the weather reports. Latest observations at 8 a.m. or 8 p.m. will be shown. At each
point of observation, if sand or dust weather is reported,
a symbol ( for sand/dust and for sandstorm/duststorm) will be plotted at the observation point.
