Shanghai weather bureau to update forecast hourly

THE Shanghai Meteorological Bureau will update weather forecast every hour on its website and microblogs starting from March, officials said this morning.

Real-time weather forecast will be updated every hour from 5am to 10pm, providing information about weather in the next three hours, said Feng Lei, the bureau's deputy director.

Shanghai's weather condition changes frequently and the current practice of forecast cannot meet people's needs, Feng said.
"We will keep our forecast in pace with the changing weather," Feng said. "Our survey showed that there is a high demand for three-hour weather forecast."

After the Spring Festival, the bureau will also begin to forecast weather conditions in the city's suburban areas during rush hours every day.
