Adverse Weather Arrangement


We have received numerous concern regarding Congress arrangement as Hong Kong experienced the recent Typhoons Hato and Pakhar. September is typhoon season month in Hong Kong and weather is generally hot and humid. The average low and high temperatures are 26 °C (79 °F) and 30 °C (86 °F). The Hong Kong Observatory announces the general outlook for the rest of this week as sunny with occasional showers. For more information on Hong Kong weather, please visit
