High humidity can make it feel hotter. This is also Hong Kong’s wettest period and thunderstorms can be expected.

January to February is cloudy, with occasional cold fronts followed by dry northerly winds. Temperatures can drop below 10°C in urban areas.

The Hong Kong Observatory issues typhoon alerts. There are five signals. If typhoon signal 8 or above is raised, schools, businesses and shops close and flights may be cancelled.
