Observatory lowers typhoon signal to T1

The observatory has on Tuesday lowered this year’s first No 3 typhoon signal to Standby Signal No, 1 as Tropical Storm Cempaka moves further away from Hong Kong.

“Cempaka is drifting steadily towards the western coast of Guangdong. According to the present forecast track, Cempaka is expected to move gradually away from Hong Kong and weaken. The local winds are weakening progressively,” the weathermen said.

However, the rain bands of Cempaka will continue to bring heavy showers and squalls to the territory.

The observatory urged members of the public to remain on the alert.
