The Hong Kong Observatory said on Monday morning that the chance of issuing the Strong Wind Signal No 3 was not high. But it said the associated squally showers would continue to affect Hong Kong today. At 4pm, Tropical Storm Kujira was estimated to be about 530 kilometres south-southwest of Hong Kong. It is forecast to move north or north-northwest at about 12 kilometres per hour in the general direction of Hainan Island and the Leizhou Peninsula. The Observatory issued the first standby signal No1 last night and forecast squally showers would continue to hit Hong Kong in the next couple of days as Kujira edges closer to the coast of Guangdong. “We expect the showers to decrease only in the latter part of the week,” the Observatory’s senior scientific officer Lee Tsz-cheung said on Monday.
