Don't be fooled: it may feel like autumn, but Hong Kong's hot weather may return

It was 12 degrees Celsius at Tai Mo Shan this morning, but we could see temperatures up to nearly 30 degrees on Thursday

It may feel like autumn has finally arrived, but don't put away your summer stuff yet - the cool dry breezes could be short-lived.

At 8am today, the Hong Kong Observatory recorded a temperature of 20.7 degrees Celsius, the second lowest this month, with a relative humidity of 55 per cent. The weather authority’s red fire danger warning remained in force.

It was even colder at Hong Kong’s highest point, Tai Mo Shan, which recorded a reading of just over 12 degrees at 7am.

While the temperature was predicted to climb to 25 degrees on Monday, a dry northeast monsoon in southern China prompted a forecast of fine and dry weather in the coming days. 


The one cold-weather recipe everyone should master before winter sets in


The Observatory expected a low of 19 degrees on Tuesday, with warmer conditions returning midweek and a high of 28 degrees on Thursday.

Mornings were predicted to stay relatively cool.
