[attachthumb=1]The Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) Weather Banner displays the latest weather warning, air temperature and relative humidity, local area forecast and 5-day forecasts on your PDA and Smartphone anytime anywhere.
It’s a small .cab file download at under 300kb. Make sure you right-click and “save as” or you will be greeted with a screen full of gibberish.
This utility is similar to the famous hkwx but comes straight from the HK Observatory but at first glance it does not appear to have as many features as hkwx.news.gov.hk wrote:Two weather tools specially designed for personal digital assistants and smartphones with Internet access and multimedia capabilities have been launched, offering meteorological information anytime, anywhere.
Satellite and radar animation sequences enable users to visualise the movement of weather systems by observing the progress of cloud or rain bands. This will help people decide whether to continue or halt weather sensitive business or leisure activities.
The Weather Banner is a small software plug-in for PDAs and smartphones to show the latest weather warnings, air temperature and humidity, local area forecasts and five-day forecasts.
Visit the Hong Kong Observatory’s website to view and download weather information and software.
Remember: the Observatory also has a handy Weather Wizard for Windows Desktop PC’s.
