Reply To: HK weather weirder with warming; hot months etc


It was indeed a remarkably warm November – the hottest on record.

November 2006 was unseasonably warm. The monthly mean temperature of 23.3 degrees reached an all-time high.

says the Hong Kong Observatory.
The mean air temperature of 23.3C was 1.9C above normal.

Rainfall was high too, at 99.6mm – 64.5mm above normal. Much of this was on one day:

A broad band of rain and thunderstorms affected southern China on 21 November. Locally, the weather was overcast with heavy rain and squally thunderstorms. More than 100 millimetres of rainfall was recorded at Wu Kau Tang and Ma On Shan on that day.

(isn’t a note re whether this was a remarkably rainy day for November)
