Stormy weather ahead for HK
After sweltering under a heatwave that lasted for two weeks, Hong Kong is expect to have stormy weather this week, according to the Hong Kong Observatory.
The Observatory said a tropical cyclone in the South China Sea was expected to move towards Hainan, affecting southern China and HK.
“There will be a few showers over the coast of Guangdong today (June 4). The tropical cyclone over the central part of the South China Sea will move towards the vicinity of Hainan Island in the next couple of days,” the Observatory said.
“Its associated squally showers will affect the south China coast midweek this week, but there are still uncertainties in its subsequent movement and intensity,” it added.
The Observatory said the squally showers–rain accompanied by brief but sudden strong or gale force winds–and thunderstorms were expected tomorrow until Thursday.
It also said that there was a low-pressure area east of the Philippines that will develop gradually and would also affect the region in the next few days.
As of 11 a. m. today, the Observatory raised the thunderstorm warning for HK.
