From June to August this year, Hong Kong was the hottest summer in history, and the Observatory said that mainly due to the relatively normal warmer sea surface temperature in the northern South China Sea and the relatively normal strong low-level southwest air flow along the coast of South China, Hong Kong was much hotter than normal, with an average temperature of 6.8 degrees, the highest on record. In addition, the number of hot nights in August was 8 days, which also broke a record, and the total rainfall was only 29% of normal.
As Tropical Cyclone Kanu moved towards the East China Sea on 7 and 8 August, Hong Kong recorded a temperature of 15.31 degrees in the afternoon. Subsequently, the lowest temperature of the whole month was recorded on 8 August, which was 3.4 degrees, but it was also the highest recorded minimum temperature in August.


The average temperature in August was 8.29 degrees Celsius, 7 degree higher than normal, making it the hottest summer on record

The Observatory pointed out today (4th) that the average temperature in August was 8.29 degrees and the average minimum temperature was 7.27 degrees, 8.1 degrees and 0.1 degrees higher than their respective normal values, both of which were the highest records in August on record. In addition, the average maximum temperature in August was 1.8 degrees, 8.32 degrees above normal and one of the second highest on record.

Together with the unusually hot months of June and July, and the more abnormally hot August, Hong Kong experienced one of the hottest summers on record. The average temperature from June to August this year was a record-breaking 6.7 degrees, while the average maximum temperature was 8.6 degrees and the average minimum temperature was 8.29 degrees, both the second highest on record during the same period.
