Here is the latest weather bulletin issued by the Hong Kong Observatory.

The northeast monsoon is bringing cooler weather to Guangdong. Locally, temperatures over the territory in the afternoon were generally three to four degrees lower than those of yesterday.

At 4 p.m., Tropical Depression Muifa was centred about 830 kilometres north-northwest of Yap. It is forecast to move north-northeast at about 14 kilometres per hour across the western North Pacific to the east of the Philippines.

Weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow

Mainly cloudy. One or two showers at first. Cooler tomorrow morning with a minimum temperature of about 19 degrees. Sunny intervals during the day with a maximum temperature of around 23 degrees. Moderate northeasterly winds, fresh offshore at first.

Outlook : Mainly fine with temperatures rising progressively during the weekend.

Yesterday's (26 Apr 2017) average ambient gamma radiation
dose rate taken outdoors in Hong Kong ranged from 0.08 to
0.14 microsievert per hour.  These are within the normal
range of fluctuation of the background radiation level in
Hong Kong (see Note). The average dose rates measured at the
radiation monitoring stations over various parts of the
territory were as follows :

Note
  1. From readings taken at various locations in Hong Kong during the period 1987-2016, the background ambient gamma radiation levels may vary between 0.06 and 0.30 microsievert per hour.
  2. The extent of health effects to a person as a result of exposure to radiation is expressed by a physical quantity called equivalent dose, in unit of sievert. Protective action may be required if there is an increase in the ambient gamma dose rate above background such that the total additional dose is expected to exceed 5000 microsieverts in a relatively short period of time. For example, a dose of 5000 microsieverts may be reached when the ambient gamma dose rate is 1000 microsieverts per hour (several thousand times above background) and lasts for 5 hours.
  3. The readings of ambient gamma radiation level from instrument are expressed in unit of gray, which is numerically equal to the gamma dose expressed in sievert.
