Do You Want to Build a Snowman? Not this Weekend
- Written by arounddb, 18 January 2016
Temperatures are expected to drop this Friday and hit a possible seven degree base the following Monday morning, according to the Hong Kong Observatory. This has led some online speculation of a little snow over the weekend.
The Hong Kong Observatory however quickly dashed these rumors, citing cloudy to dry yet extremely cold weather over a five-day period between the 22nd to the 26th. This is sandwiched between days of light to moderate rain.
There had been a few snow sightings in Hong Kong. Three of the four reportedly took place in Tai Mo Shan, in the winters of 1967, 1971 and 1975. The lowest temperature ever recorded was zero degrees centigrade in January 1893.
While the unlikelihood of seeing an inconsequential amount of snow may be disappointing, the temperature drop comes as pleasant news to those who feel shortchanged with the season thus far. It's an ideal time to step out in fashionable winter clothing or stay indoors fully stocked with wine and movies.
