Under the influence of a dry northeast monsoon, the weather this week will be generally fine but windy over the coastal areas in the next couple of days, according to the Hong Kong Observatory.
An area of low pressure will develop gradually over the vicinity of the Philippines in the middle and latter parts of this week, and move across the northern part of the South China Sea today.

Besides, replenishment of the northeast monsoon will reach the coast of southern China tonight, which will bring winds over Hong Kong.
