Weather and Temperature in Hong Kong: July

If you think it's hot in June then July is even hotter.  It has an average temperature of 31C (88F) and over 90% humidity so it's hot and sticky.  The concern for Hong Kong residents though is the approach of the Typhoon Season.  Totally unpredictable in when they arrive, and only slightly predictable in what path they take, typhoons can be a big problem for the region.

In recent years we have been very lucky and no major typhoons have hit for probably more than 10 years.

Due to complaints a few years ago the Hong Kong Observatory have also become rather more cautious and issue warnings earlier, including making the decision to shut down schools and offices.  This has avoided any of the problems if before when people were not able to get their children home in time when the storm actually arrived.

In between typhoons, which come about once every two months during this period and last a few days, the weather is generally very hot with occasional showers.

From now through the end of the year skies are clear and there is plenty of sunshine.  The only problem for the visitor to Hong Kong is that it is start to get too hot.  No problem if you are shopping, but if you want to do hiking you should think about doing it early or late in the day.
