Observatory says chance of T8 signal is not high

The Observatory says the chance of the No 8 Gale or Storm Signal being issued overnight is not high and that the Strong Wind Signal No 3 will remain in force for some time.

It said the area of gales associated with Severe Tropical Storm Cempaka was relatively small and, unless it intensified significantly or adopted a track closer to Hong Kong, the chance of gales over the territory was not high.

However, the Observatory said the storm’s track and intensity changes remained uncertain and that it would closely monitor its movement and development.

It said the storm’s rain bands will bring occasional heavy showers and squalls to the territory on Tuesday.
