Signal No.1 up as stormy weather forecast for HK Sunday

12 June 2020

By The SUN

Forget about doing any outdoor activity this Sunday because stormy weather is expected

If you’re planning any outdoor activity on Sunday, Jun 14, forget it. Stormy weather is  expected as Tropical Cyclone Nuri heads towards the northern South China Sea and will be closest to Hong Kong by then.

The Hong Kong Observatory hoisted Tropical Cyclone Signal No.1 at 9pm today, Jun 12, as the weather disturbance left the Philippines early today, moving northwest at about 18 kilometers per hour.
As of 9:45pm, Nuri was packing maximum sustained winds of about 55kph near its center, was forecast to move northwest at about 22kph, edging closer to the coast of western Guangdong and intensifying.

The observatory said it will become cloudy tonight but there will be sunny periods early tomorrow, Saturday, with a few showers and squallthunderstorms.
The standby signal, No. 1 will remain in force for some time.

The Observatory says it will consider issuing the strong wind signal no 3 if the weather deteriorates.
Very hot weather is expected tonight and early tomorrow, with temperatures ranging from 27 to 33 degrees Celsius. 

The observatory warned the public of heatstroke and advised them to drink more water.
Just yesterday, three men who went on separate hikes in Sai Kung and Hoi Ha collapsed after suffering heat stroke. One of them died in hospital after complaining of chest pains.

The Observatory said it will be windy with squallshowers on Sunday. The showers will continue until Tuesday.
