03-07-2015 – Hong Kong’s hottest June for more than a century
Records from the Observatory show that Hong Kong had its hottest June since records began 130 years ago. Last month’s average mean temperature came in 29.7 degrees Celsius, which is 1.8 degrees higher than the June average. The number of very hot days and very hot nights also hit a record. The Observatory’s Scientific Officer Tsoi Tze-shun said though the temperature variations show ups and downs, the trend definitely indicates global warming.
