Hottest February on record in HK

HONG Kong recorded a monthly mean temperature of 20.5 degrees Celsius at the Hong Kong Observatory in February, making it the warmest February in Hong Kong since 1884, when records were first kept.

The monthly average temperature was 4.2 degrees higher than the trend level in the past three decades, the Hong Kong Observatory said yesterday.

The observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 28.3 degrees, making it the hottest February day in 125 years.

The unusually warm February was attributed to a weak northeast monsoon which saw little cold air from the north.
