Hong Kong can expect to see rain for the next week, says the Observatory, after cancelling an Amber rainstorm warning in place on Tuesday morning. 

Rain was particularly heavy in the Central and Western districts of Hong Kong Island, which saw more than 70 millimetres fall in just an hour. Although the Amber rainstorm was cancelled, the HKO still warned people to be aware of the danger of flooding.

Showers and thunderstorms will stick around for the next week, with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees Celsius to 32 degrees Celsius.
