Just when we thought we'd be spending all our summer indoors, and set a Young Post cadet on a research mission to find 11 facts we didn't know about rain, the sun came out - and it looks like it's going to stay for the weekend and hopefully beyond!

The Hong Kong Observatory forecasts mainly fine and very hot weather - with a high of 33 degrees Celsius - for tomorrow and Saturday, with sunny periods and a few showers on Sunday, and back to very hot and sunny from Monday until Wednesday. (Remember to respect the sun! Here's our guide to not getting burnt.)

This comes after 10 consecutive days of rain which started when Typhoon Merbok hit the city last Monday night.

Since the beginning of this month, a total rainfall of 1155.4mm has been recorded, 21 per cent higher than the average of 956.8mm in the same period.

Five yellow rainstorm warnings were issued on June 13, 17 and 21, and two red warnings were issued on June 13 and 17.
