hongkong observatory storm signal advisory

"The Observatory will consider the need of issuing the Gale or Storm Signal No. 8 around sunset."

i wish HKO would just announce this type of warning earlier. like, during office hours, right? or maybe in the next day morning, so we don't have to go to work? hahaha typhoon signals in hongkong are classified by wind speed. there are 3 levels: 1, 3, 8; while 9 and 10 are still possible, they are seldom hoisted. rainstorm warnings are identified by amount of rainfall and are issued based on colors: amber, red, black. more often than not, hko weather forecasts are almost accurate. that's why i always check on the site,, for the latest update. may it be on the latest outside temperature or the 7-days forecast, i rely on the site for such information.
