Squally Thunderstorms on 8 June 2007
(8 June 2007)

Severe squalls affected various parts of Hong Kong this morning (Friday, 8 June 2007) during the passage of thunderstorms associated with a rainband under the influence of an active trough of low pressure.

The Hong Kong International Airport reported gusts up to 129 km per hour around 9:45 a.m. The Observatory issued a "squally thunderstorm" warning for the airport between 07:35 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and a "strong wind and gust" warning for the airport between 09:27 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Peak gusts of 75 km per hour were recorded at Kai Tak (harbour area) and 79 km per hour were recorded at Sai Kung (eastern part of Hong Kong).

This trough of low pressure is expected to continue bringing unsettled weather to the south China coastal areas in the next few days.
