    4/20 - The Weather....

    WTF just happened. The weather deteriorated in a matter of 15-20 minutes.

    Went from mildly annoying to far worse than what we've seen in our area during a T-10.

    Please be reminded that:

    The Red Rainstorm Warning Signal was issued at 2:20 p.m.
    The Thunderstorm Warning has been issued. It will remain effective until 3:30 p.m. today. Squally thunderstorms are expected to occur over Hong Kong.

    The rain and lightning are really bad but between 2 tall buildings around Landmark & Cheung Kong Center I saw something (mist/rain?) moving faster than anything I have seen. Maybe a mini tornado or something?

    Gusts reaching 100 kilometres per hour or above may continue to affect Hong Kong. (20-04-2019 14:25)

    HKO website works for me. The app keeps shutting down when I check the warnings though.

    “Gusts reaching 100 kilometres per hour or above may continue to affect Hong Kong.”

    Anyone have some door contractors recommendations? I have some sliding glass doors that need to be adjusted / properly weather stripped etc. I’d rather have the work done now before full typhoon season

    I was sitting by the water, under a shelter planning to watch the rainstorm. Minutes later i was watching what appeared to be a typhoon, i was drenched to the bone and literally holding onto the shelter post. Very entertaining.

    Sometimes weather events here can be over dramatised. This was not one of those times!
