Shower to hit this week as tropical cyclone Noru passes
The Hong Kong Observatory said that Noru, a super typhoon coming from the South China Sea, will bring a few showers with winds to Hong Kong this week but with minor influence.
According to the forecast on Sunday, a northeast monsoon will affect the coast of Guangdong for two to three days. With Noru over the east of the Philippines being about to enter the South China Sea in the early morning tomorrow, Hong Kong weather will be sunny on Monday, with a few showers in the following few days.
Noru will move across the central part of the South China Sea towards the vicinity of the central part of Vietnam in the following couple of days, the weather watchdog said.
However, Noru expected to keep a distance of around 700 kilometres from Hong Kong, which means its direct threat to the territory is not high.
Under the influence of the northeast monsoon, east-to-northeasterly winds will prevail in the territory on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Observatory said it would closely monitor the development and movement of Noru and called on the public to pay attention to the latest weather information.
