All climatic diagrams of this page are taken from the collected data from 12 measuring stations in Hong Kong.
All data correspond to the average monthly values of the last 20 years.

In 8 months the average temperatures are over 25 degrees. Pleasant water temperatures of up to 28 degrees even invite you to take a bath in the warm season.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1993 - 2020

In contrast to single record values, a long-term development cannot simply be brought about by all weather stations in the country. Both the number and the locations are constantly changing. A simply calculated average value would give a falsified result. If several measuring stations in particularly cold mountain or coastal regions are added in one year, the average would already decrease as a result of this alone. If a station fails during the summer or winter months, it does not provide any values and falsifies the average again. The subsequent long-term development was therefore reduced to only 1 measuring points in order to have actually comparable data over as long a period as possible.

In the years 1993 to 2020 there were only these 1 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (Hongkong). From these weather reports we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was 2020 with 29.8 °C. 2008 was the coldest month with an average temperature of 13.2 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 22.8 °C in the years after 1993 and about 23.7 °C in the last years before 2020. So in less than 28 years it has increased by about 0.9 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 1 weather stations in Hong Kong. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
