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 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.
