(07-03 19:05)

With the monthly mean temperature reaching 29.0 degrees, June 2014 was the hottest June in Hong Kong since records began in 1884, the Observatory said.
The monthly mean minimum temperature of 27.0 degrees and mean maximum temperature of 31.5 degrees were respectively the second and the third highest for June.
Such high temperatures were attained despite the fact that the month's sunshine duration and rainfall were not far from normal. The total rainfall for the month was 436.6 millimeters, about four per cent below the normal figure of 456.1 millimeters. The accumulated rainfall since January 1 of 1503.4 millimeters was about 37 per cent above the normal figure of 1096.9 millimeters for the same period.
