Eight additional meteostations to be installed for ’12 APEC summit

VLADIVOSTOK, August 3 (Itar-Tass) — Eight additional meteorological stations are to installed in various districts here and and on the piers of the bridge on Russkiy (Russian) Island before the end of this year to ensure weather forecasting for the benefit of participants in the 2012 summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, Varvara Koridze, press secretary of the Primorsky Territory hydrometeo center, has told Itar-Tass.

“Weather conditions in various districts of the city differ from one another due to rugged topography and geographical position of Vladivostok. When fog is reported in one place, the sun is shining in another. A weather forecasting report for the city as a whole is just one oriented to the city’s center,” said Yelena Gridneva, chief meteorologist of the center.

Following the introduction of new meteostations, which will measure wind velocity and direction, air temperature and moisture content, atmospheric pressure, the amount and intensity of precipitation, a city weather forecast, in an automatic mode, will take into account weather conditions in the districts and the peculiarities of the city.
