Hong Kong City Climate & Weather

Hong Kong City Climate and Weather


The climate of Hong Kong is subtropical for half of the year and temperate for the rest, with hot, humid summers and cool, dry winters. Winter lasts from January to March, the coldest month being February, when the temperature averages 57°F (14°C) and the city gets cooled by strong, cold winds from the north. In spring the wind blows from the south, bringing in warm, humid air and a rainy season that extends through summer. Average temperatures in summer, between June and August, climb to 82°F (28°C) and typhoons are possible.

Hong Kong is a little too hot and humid in the peak summer months to be comfortable, and winter can be too chilly, but in late spring (May) or autumn (September) the temperature is just right, making these the best times to visit Hong Kong.
