Hong Kong Weather May

Hong Kong Climate ChartWith its sub-tropical climate, expats relocating to Hong Kong will have to adjust to the cold winters, hot, humid summers, and a rainy season that extends from spring through summer.


Spring in Hong Kong lasts from March to May, and is marked by rising temperatures and increased humidity as summer approaches. During this period, the weather in Hong Kong can change quickly, and expats should expect the unexpected.

The Hong Kong summer is hot and humid with occasional thunderstorms and showers. Temperatures can peak as high as 89°F (32°C), and humidity levels can make it feel even hotter than it already is.

Autumn lasts from September to November and is arguably the best time of year in Hong Kong. Temperatures tend to be comfortable, ranging between 66° F (19°C) and 82°F (28°C), and days are often sunny, with a pleasant breeze. Humidity is low, rainfall is manageable, skies are clear and blue, and temperatures are warm, but not stifling.

Winter proceeds from December to February, with temperatures sometimes dropping below 50°F (10°C) in the city. Winter in Hong Kong tends to be cloudy and cold, but dry and free of snow.

Thunderstorms can be expected from May onwards. An average of 31 tropical cyclones wreak havoc on the northwestern Pacific every year, and roughly half of them turn into typhoons. Apart from gale force winds, the most notable consequences of typhoons are heavy rains that last for days at a time, flooding and potentially dangerous landslides.

Typhoons are reality that expats living in Hong Kong have to be prepared for. News and radio broadcasts will usually warn residents of approaching typhoons, which are ranked according to a scale. A typhoon with a factor of eight may result in delayed flights and most often results in shop and business closures.
