The record breaking high temperature for 1st of July

(1 July 2004)

Under the influence of the subsiding air outside Severe Tropical Storm Mindulle, it was very hot and hazy over the coastal areas of Guangdong today (1 July 2004). Hong Kong was also affected by the hot northwesterly airstream from inland and temperatures rose above 34 degrees in most places. The maximum temperature recorded at the Observatory this afternoon was 34.6 degrees, the highest so far this year. It also breaks the record of the highest temperature at the Observatory for 1 July. Temperatures at Sha Tin, Tai Po, Tuen Mun and Chek Lap Kok even reached 37 degrees. A map showing the maximum temperatures over various parts of Hong Kong today is given below.

The weather is expected to remain very hot tomorrow (2 July 2004). The maximum temperature in the urban areas will be about 33 degrees and a couple of degrees higher in the New Territories.
