It will be cold in HK again next week

17 January 2024


Next Wednesday will be as cold as last Christmas day

The Hong Kong Observatory has advised people to keep warm starting this weekend as temperatures are expected to plunge again.

A cold front is expected to move across the coast of southern China on Saturday night, causing temperatures to dip to 13 degrees on Sunday morning. It will continue to drop until it reaches about 9 degrees on Wednesday.

“The associated intense winter monsoon will affect the region in the following few days. It will become cold appreciably,” said a spokesperson for the Observatory.


Meanwhile, the next few days are expected to be cloudy with some rain places. The Observatory said this is due to an “upper-air disturbance” in the region.

Separately, “Milk Tea” has emerged as the favorite name for a typhoon in a survey conducted recently by the Observatory.

Forty names were suggested by weather officials, and the list was whittled down to 20 after 20,000 voters were consulted.


Coming in as second favorite  is “Tsing-ma” from Tsing Ma bridge, while “Fo-lung” which means dragon in Chinese, came in third.

The other names that won the nod of netizens were “Siu-lung,” the stage name of the late action star Bruce Lee; “Shu-sin” and “Heung-pin” which are two different kinds of tea; and “Pui-pui”, from the crocodile captured in the city 20 years ago.

Also voted in were Dim-sum, Egret, Red-bean, Junk-boat and Sampan.

Not chosen were “An-an, Jia-jia, Ying-ying and Le-le, all referring to the beloved pandas in Ocean Park.
