Chill! it'll be cold but not for longLocal | Angela Cheung 17 Nov 2017
Bring out those winter woolies as cold weather is just around the corner.
According to the Hong Kong Observatory, chilly winds should arrive tomorrow, getting progressively cooler over the weekend to around 16 degrees Celsius on Monday.
The temperature will then remain below 20 degrees for most of next week, mixed with periods of rain.
Senior scientific officer Tam Kong- hung said the cooler weather is due to the effect of the northeastern monsoon.
The observatory said it will be significantly cooler in the evenings as well as windy and rainy.
Visibility will be relatively low.
Tomorrow, the minimum temperature will be around 19 degrees, with the maximum at 26 degrees. On Monday, the mercury will dip to 16 degrees.
The minimum relative humidity will drop from 95 percent today to 65 percent tomorrow.
However, the cold weather will not last too long, the observatory said.
The cooler weather comes just over a month after the observatory issued a hot weather warning on October 12 when temperatures hit 33.5 degrees.
The weather today will be mainly fine and cloudy with moderate easterly winds. The temperature will range from 22 to 27 degrees.
