A cold front is expected to move across the coast of southern China early next week. The weather will become appreciably cooler and there will be a few rain patches over the region.

According to the 9-Day Weather Forecast, the temperature will be 17 to 21 degrees next Monday. It will drop slightly to below 20 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

An automatic regional weather forecast shows that the temperature at Ta Kwu Ling will drop to 11 degrees at 7am next Tuesday.

In the meantime, a northeast monsoon is affecting southern China. In the coming few days, the weather will be mainly cloudy with sunny periods during the day.

The next two days will remain warm, with temperatures ranging from 21 to 27 degrees.

In addition, a partial lunar eclipse will occur in Hong Kong on Friday evening.

According to the latest forecast, there will be sunny periods during the day with a low probability of heavy rain. Weather should be suitable for watching the eclipse.

The Observatory reminded that as the elevation of the moon will be rather low during the eclipse, and the event can be best observed at places with an unobstructed view to the east and the northeast.
