The Theme of the Calendar

 

The photos in the calendar echo the 2017 World Meteorological Day theme - "Understanding Clouds" and promote an appreciation and understanding of the fascinating and ever changing clouds in all their forms and shapes. This year, apart from collecting weather photos through the social media, the Observatory has also adopted winning entries from the first-ever "Sky of Silver Age" photo competition jointly organised by the Observatory and the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association. Each calendar photo provides a quick response (QR) code for readers to access relevant information on the respective weather phenomena.

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the introduction of numbered typhoon signals in Hong Kong. To commemorate the event, specially designed centre spreads have been added to outline the evolution of tropical cyclone warning system in Hong Kong over the past century.
