Websites on official city weather forecasts and global
new domain names
23 March 2006 onwards, the official domain name of the World
Weather Information Service (WWIS) Website (English version)
will change to worldweather.wmo.int.
Similarly, the Severe Weather Information Centre (SWIC)
Website will take on a new domain name severe.worldweather.wmo.int.
These new domain names carry the tag ".wmo.int"

using the new domain names and help tell other users about
old domain names, i.e. www.worldweather.org
(WWIS) and severe.worldweather.org
(SWIC), will continue to be operative for some time and will
be phased out in due course. The two Websites are operated
by the Hong Kong Observatory, Hong Kong, China, on behalf of
