Hong Kong Observatory Weather Station

The HKO commenced upper air meteorological observations in 1921. In the early days, the work was carried out at the Headquarters in Tsim Sha Tsui and pilot balloon was used to measure upper air wind direction and speed.

A centennial observing station accreditation certificate has been awarded by the World Meteorological Organization to the upper air observing station of the HKO.
