Hong Kong is expected to have sunny weather with a few intermittent showers on Tuesday, the 17th anniversary of the city’s handover to Chinese rule, according to the Hong Kong Observatory.
The air temperature will probably range between 26.9 and 31.2 degrees Celsius. There will be about 6.4 hours of sunshine during the day time. Humidity will be about 82 percent, which is a normal level, the Observatory said.
Wind speed is expected to be about 22 kilometers per hour, which is a moderate level.
All data is based on recordings at the Hong Kong Observatory except sunshine duration, which comes from readings taken at King’s park; and wind speed, which is based on data taken at Waglan Island.
Following a 10-day referendum on electoral reforms — the unofficial vote ended Sunday with nearly 800,000 people casing their ballot — hundreds of thousands of Hongkongers are expected to take part in a rally on July 1 to voice their discontent over Beijing’s recent White Paper on the “one country, two systems”, the Hong Kong government’s controversial plan to redevelop northeastern New Territories, and other social issues.
People who join the march from Victoria Park to government headquarters in Admiralty have been advised to wear a hat or bring an umbrella. They should also drink and carry lot of water to prevent dehydration.
