The World Meteorological Organization and the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) today announced the launch of “MyWeather” – a mobile app on iPhone platform featuring the World Weather Information Service (WWIS). It is the world’s first ever location-specific weather service providing official city weather forecasts around the world for people on the move.
“MyWeather” is developed by the Hong Kong Observatory on behalf of the WMO. Equipped with location-based technology to detect the user’s location, the application automatically displays the latest official weather forecasts and climatological information of the city nearest to the user. It provides a quick search function that allows users to obtain the latest official weather information from over 1,400 cities around the world. The application also enables users to create bookmarks for easy access to weather forecasts for cities of their choice in the future.
