An active trough of low pressure brought unsettled weather to South China today (25 June 2001). It is expected that this active trough of low pressure would affect the coastal areas of South China in the next couple of days. However, a ridge of high pressure over the western Pacific would extend westwards and is expected to bring fine weather to Hong Kong during the latter part of the week.
