Cold weather starting Tuesday evening; Sunday’s temperature to rise between 17 degrees to 22 degrees.
A cold front is expected to descend across the coast of Guangdong between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, according to the Hong Kong Observatory.
This is due to the intense influence of the northeastern wind of the monsoon.
“Winds will strengthen from the north and the weather will become cool appreciably over the region on Wednesday,” it said
Based on the forecast made by the Hong Kong Observatory, the warmer weather would remain until Tuesday.
The drop in temperature will significantly start on Wednesday, with temperatures hovering between 13 degrees and 20 degrees.
The city’s temperature is expected to plunge as low as 10 degrees celsius in places like Ta Kwu Ling, 12 degrees at Sheung Shui, Tin Shui Wai, and Tai Po on Friday.
Moreover, within the next couple of days, the drop in temperature will also have clouds with sporadic rain patches starting Wednesday.
“When a cold front or monsoon arrives, the temperature will drop,” said Lo Ka-wai, a scientific officer at the Observatory. “As its impact eases, the temperature will climb up slightly until the next monsoon.”
By next Sunday, the mercury will rise between 17 degrees to 22 degrees.
The Observatory is also forecasting a warmer period between November and January due to global warming.
The temperature change to cooler weather is a welcome change after this summer’s heat wave with the mercury rising at record levels with July becoming the hottest month since records began in 1884.
In addition, on Sep. 13, 2022, the Observatory reported another record breaking temperature with 35.9 degrees – the warmest day documented for the month.
