Aside from the parade of festive lights and Christmas markets all over the city, the drop in temperature is sure enough a clear sign that the winter season has arrived in Hong Kong. According to the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO), the weather will be cold and dry for the next few days (including Christmas Day!) due to the winter monsoon and a band of clouds covering the region.

As indicated on HKO's Automated Regional Weather Forecast platform, the city's temperature is anticipated to reach as low as 7 to 8 degrees Celsius in the New Territories on December 24 and 25, and around 9 to 12 degrees Celsius in other areas of Hong Kong. So, remember to wrap up warm before heading out for your celebrations!
