Warmer weather seen in HK until weekend

02 March 2022

Satellite imagery of the weather in Hong Kong and nearby areas.

Hong Kong is expected to warm up during the rest of this week, basking in the intermittent appearance of the sun until Sunday, before the temperature plunges again, the Hong Kong Observatory has forecast.

But while it will again be colder next week, due to the continued winter air flow from the north, it will be drier due to the clouds over China dissipating after hovering for most of February.

The Observatory forecast sunny intervals during the days until the weekend, although misty in the morning and at night. Temperatures are expected to range between 18 and 23 degrees.


There will be one or two rain patches next Monday morning, becoming fine during the day. And it will then be dry with cool mornings the rest of next week.

The Observatory’s forecast for the next nine days:

March 3 (Thu): Mainly cloudy with sunny intervals. Coastal mist at first.


March 4 (Fri): Warm with sunny periods during the day. Some mist in the morning and at night.

March 5 (Fri): Misty. Warm with sunny periods during the day.

March 6 (Sat): Sunny intervals. One or two rain and mist patches in the morning.

March 7 (Sun): One or two rain patches in the morning. Becoming fine and dry during the day.


March 8 (Mon): Sunny periods. Dry during the day.

March 9 (Tue): Sunny periods.

March 10 (Wed): Sunny periods.

March 11 (Thu): Sunny intervals.

The Observatory’s forecast of warmer weather comes in the wake of an unusually wet February.


In a press release, the Observatory said a stronger than normal winter monsoon affecting southern China in February made the weather of Hong Kong much colder than usual. The monthly mean temperature was 15.2 degrees, 1.9 degrees below the normal figure of 17.1 degrees.

“Mainly owing to the continuous rain episode from February 19 to 22, the month was also much wetter than usual with a total rainfall of 168.5 millimetres, more than four times of the normal of 38.9mm and the sixth highest on record for February,” it said.

The accumulated rainfall recorded in the first two months of the year was 172.6mm, more than two times the normal figure of 71.9mm for the same period, it added.

“The prolonged cold and rainy weather also brought the temperature recorded at the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) down to 7.5 degrees on the morning of February 21, the lowest of the month,” it said.
