Weather in Hong Kong now
HONG KONG—Weather authorities issued an ominous-sounding warning for residents of this humid subtropical city on Wednesday: Winter is coming.
At 4:20 p.m. local time, with temperatures hovering around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or 21 degrees Celsius, the Hong Kong Observatory put its Cold Weather Warning into effect. The Observatory said residents should expect falling temperatures to continue to plummet over the next few days—all the way down to still quite-mild lows of about 52 degrees Fahrenheit, or 11 degrees Celsius.
“People are advised to put on warm clothes and to avoid adverse health effects due to the cold weather, ” the Observatory helpfully offered in a statement on its website, adding: “If you must go out, please avoid prolonged exposure to wintry winds.”
You can excuse Hong Kong’s many expats from harsher northern climates for expressing a bit of confusion over such specific guidance on how to keep warm in these temperate times, but many local residents take such warnings to heart. Workers decked out in stylish down jackets, scarves and gloves were a common sight during morning and evening commutes on Wednesday.
In a final bit of sound advice, the Observatory reminded people: “Do not light fires indoors as a means to keep warm.”
Such action could lead the Observatory to issue a Fire Danger Warning, which as of Wednesday night, was not in effect.
