The Observatory will consider issuing the Strong Wind Signal, No.3 tonight.

Local weather tomorrow will deteriorate significantly with frequent squalls and heavy rain. Seas will be rough with swells. There may also be flooding in low-lying areas. Members of the public should remain vigilant and take all precautions as early as possible.

Shenzhen Terminals have stopped all empty containers pickups and all laden containers gate-ins. Hong Kong Terminals are still in operations until further notice. Most airlines have cancelled their cargo freighters in/out HKG with the period of 11:00am to 22:00pm on tomorrow.
