    Is your point that they got the forecast wrong, or that there is something wrong with the app?

    I think GNR is referring to the way the forecast says 15-20 - when it's apparently now 12!

    The temperature range is for the HKO in Kowloon. I guess you are somewhere else, where it is 12.2C.

    based on the readings shown around HK, the range seems ok.

    second Claire's point - with the app 12.2 is based on your location, for the prediction, take away 2 deg C for NT areas

    Before the OP hang the HKO out to dry, remember the HKO these days are far more reliable in their prediction. Growing up, my local in-laws would say the HKO was famous for being anything but reliable. When they forecast a sunny day, it would often rain and vice versa. In fact, the HKO became a butt of jokes for it's wrong forecasts. The last 10-20 years have been a completely different story. As supercomputers and other new equipment has drastically improved the accuracy of weather forecast.
