Cold Weather Warning

The Cold Weather Warning has been issued by the Hong Kong
Observatory at 4:20 p.m. Cold weather is expected in Hong
Kong during the overnight period.

The minimum temperature in the urban areas overnight will be around 11 degrees. It will be lower than 10 degrees over parts of the New Territories and on high ground.

As Hong Kong will be affected by a cold winter monsoon in
the next couple of days, people are advised to put on warm
clothes and to avoid adverse health effects due to the cold
weather. You must also ensure adequate indoor ventilation.

If you must go out, please avoid prolonged exposure to
wintry winds.

If you know of elderly persons or persons with chronic
medical conditions staying alone, please call or visit them
occasionally to check if they need any assistance.

Make sure heaters are safe before use, and place them away
from any combustibles. Do not light fires indoors as a means
to keep warm.

Whatever the temperature, please ensure that there is plenty
of fresh air in your room when you are using an old-type gas
water heater.
