21st May 2024 – (Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Observatory has replaced the Red Rainstorm Warning Signal with the Amber Rainstorm Warning Signal at 4pm. The territorial region is currently experiencing thundery showers, which are gradually moving eastward and losing intensity. This change comes as a trough of low pressure brings heavy showers and thunderstorms to the Guangdong coast, accompanied by an easterly airstream affecting the eastern coast of Guangdong.

According to the weather forecast for this afternoon and tonight, the skies will remain cloudy with intermittent showers and a few thunderstorms. Initially, the showers are expected to be heavy. Moderate to fresh east to southeasterly winds will be present.

Looking ahead, the outlook indicates that there will still be a few showers in the upcoming days. Furthermore, more showers are anticipated from Thursday to Friday. However, the weekend is expected to bring brighter conditions, although there may still be a few scattered showers.
