Hi I''ll be in Macau this Nov28 to Dec1. I brought some dress and skirts with me. Would I be needing tights? Or keeping the upper body warm would be enough? Thank you!
Hi Lenna, November cools down and the average maximum temperature is about 23°C (73°F), while the average minimum temperature is 17°C (62°F). It rarely rains during this month, so the days are a little dry. Though the wind occasionally blows, the weather is generally mild. A light sweater or jacket is adequate, but you may also need a light coat in case the weather become cold. Simon Huang replied on 2013-11-23

Hello, my name is Roy. Currently I''m at Macau for vacation. i''ve been 2 days here and according to my plan, i''m going to hong kong today. However, as I woke up in the morning, the typhoon that predicted by my hotel receptionist would occurs at 12 am - 3 am is still blowing til now. So, my question is, how long does the typhoon usually occurs? Because I would be very sad if my Hong kong schedule is ruined. Thank you

Dear Roy,
It is hard to how long the typhoon occurs, but it normally occurs in summer time.
Good luck.
