Hong Kong expects cooler weather and rain showers in the coming days


3rd December 2023 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong is expected to experience a gradual moderation of the northeast monsoon in the coming days, according to the Hong Kong Observatory. Daytime temperatures along the coast of Guangdong will see a slight rise. However, another surge of the northeast monsoon is anticipated to reach southern China by Wednesday, bringing with it one or two rain patches. In the following days, Guangdong is forecasted to have mainly fine weather due to the dry continental airstream associated with the monsoon. Meanwhile, the coast of Guangdong will experience cloudier conditions with a few rain patches over the weekend, influenced by an easterly airstream. The southern region of China is currently being affected by the northeast monsoon, and there is a band of clouds covering the area.

The weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow predicts mainly cloudy conditions with one or two light rain patches in the morning. The minimum temperature is expected to be around 20 degrees Celsius, with bright periods in the afternoon and a maximum temperature of approximately 24 degrees Celsius. The winds will be moderate, blowing from the east to northeast, occasionally fresh offshore initially.

Looking ahead, the following days will continue to be mainly cloudy, with winds gradually strengthening from the north on Wednesday. Thursday will bring fine and dry weather, along with slightly cooler mornings. Hongkongers can anticipate several days of rain and cooler temperatures later in the week, with some districts experiencing temperatures of 15 degrees Celsius or below.

The Hong Kong Observatory has stated that the current northeast monsoon will gradually moderate in the next few days, resulting in daytime temperatures ranging between 20 and 24 degrees Celsius. However, another surge of the monsoon is expected to arrive in southern China on Wednesday, bringing along with it one or two rain patches.

According to the nine-day weather forecast, mainly cloudy weather is expected with rain on Wednesday and from Saturday to Tuesday next week.

In at least three districts in the New Territories, including Sheung Shui and Shek Kong, a minimum temperature of 15 degrees Celsius or below is expected. Ta Kwu Ling will experience temperatures ranging from 14 to 25 degrees Celsius on Thursday.
