World Weather Information Service - Official Observations. Official Forecasts.
The web site is developed and maintained by the Hong Kong Observatory. If you have any suggestions, please send us an e-mail.
This WMO project on world city forecasts is to explore the wider exchange and availability of official weather information on the Internet. In view of this, a WMO-sponsored web site - World Weather Information Service (WWIS) is established as a centralized source on the Internet for media to access official weather information issued by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) efficiently and effectively. The WWIS web site is developed and maintained by the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) of Hong Kong, China.
The Commission of Basic Systems (CBS) of World Meteorological Organization (WMO) at its Twelfth Session at Geneva, 27 November - 8 December 2000 discussed the need to strengthen the recognition of the public weather services that NMHSs provide through the setting up of a pilot project. The Commission agreed that a Collecting Center should be designated to collect weather forecasts supplied by participating NMHSs. The Collecting Center would generate an integrated product of major city forecasts around the world and make it available for use by all WMO Members for dissemination to the public and the media.
