Weather in Hong Kong

The best to visit Hong Kong is in winter (October) and early spring (March), when temperatures average 17°C (61°F) and the climate is mild and fresh. Come May, the ever-present humidity skyrockets and summer becomes hot and frequently wet. Expect temperatures then to average 28°C (82°F). Typhoons hit during summer and early autumn, while ferocious rainstorms fall intermittently. For locals, a signal eight typhoon can mean a day off work, visitors shouldn't venture out if the typhoon warning exceeds signal three.
