Weather

Spring (March to mid-May)
Temperatures and humidity rise gradually in spring. Evenings can be cool but lightweight jackets suffice. The average temperature ranges from 18oC-27oC (64oF-80oF), humidity about 82 per cent.


Summer (late May to mid-September)
Hot and humid with temperatures ranges from 26oC-33oC (78oF-91oF) and humidity near 86 per cent. Short sleeves and cotton clothes work best, with a lightweight sweater for indoors as restaurants tend to set air-conditioning on high. An umbrella or hat works well to ward off the sun.


Autumn (late September to early December)
Clear and sunny days are the norm in autumn. Short sleeves and light jackets are most suitable at this time of year. The average temperature ranges from 18oC-28oC (64oF-82oF), humidity about 72 per cent.


Winter (mid-December to February)
Winters are mild with low humidity at 72 per cent. Though the temperature ranges from 14oC-20oC (57oF-68oF), the mercury can drop to 10oC (50oF). Occasional chills make woollens and overcoats necessary.


Weather Signals
Hong Kong can sometimes be affected by extreme weather. The government has issued a simple but effective warning system. There are five grades of Tropical Cyclone Warning Signals (signals 1, 3, 8, 9 and 10, with 10 being the highest). However, typhoons rarely pass directly over Hong Kong. In addition, there are three Rainstorm Warning Signals (amber, red and black, with black being the highest). When the typhoon signal is 8 or above and/or the rain signal is black, visitors are advised to stay in their hotels.
