Weather in Hong Kong: Feb

February is the month that, most years, the Chinese New Year is celebrated.  By good fortune or good luck the first day of the Luna Calendar is almost always a fine day, bright sunshine though often very cold by Hong Kong standards at least.

The weather in early February is the coldest of the year for Hong Kong.  Average temperature is about 16.8C (62F).  This is the only month when you will ever see the thermometer drop to freezing point, though even then only in a few places.  When the Hong Kong Observatory predicts freezing weather people will go to high and exposed points like Di Mo Shan during the night to see the frost.  It’s a bit of a novelty of course for Hong Kong people who normally only see frost inside their refrigerator!

You will get some rain during early February but mostly light drizzle, it is unusual to get heavy rain and for the early part the month is a dry month and good for sightseeing, provided you don't mind the cold.

Towards the mid or end of the month you may also get "early spring" weather -- more like the normal March weather of Hong Kong -- which is misty, foggy and damp.  When this arrives in Feburary it typically alternates for 3 to five days between the cool-clear-dry winter weather and the muggy-dampy-overcast spring weather.

Of course visitors from Northern Europe or America may not find it that cold at all and a jacket in the evening is all that is required to keep you warm.

Overall an unpredictable time for year so not the best for visiting.
