The Strong Monsoon Signal is now in force. Strong winds with mean speed exceeding 40 kilometres per hour are expected from the east. Gusts will occasionally reach gale force.
1. If you are not well sheltered from the east, you are advised to take precautions against strong gusty winds. Flower pots and other objects likely to be blown away should be taken indoors.
2. Those planning for water sports activities and operations at sea should take special care against high winds and rough sea conditions. Conditions are particularly rough over the offshore waters.Dispatched by Hong Kong Observatory at 01:45 HKT on 18.02.2019
