In April, the probability of precipitation increases with time. April weather in Hong Kong is mostly rainy or cloudy with some mist.
The average low and high temperatures are 16 °C (61 °F) and 29°C (84°F). The temperature can get even higher, which makes it suitable for spring outings.
Sunshine isn’t very frequent in April. Ultraviolet intensity is low so you don’t need to be as careful when going outside.
What to Wear and Prepare
You can wear summer clothes: The weather is getting much warmer and you may feel hot as the temperature may rise above 30°C (86°F). Some summer clothes, such as T-shirts, are enough for the daytime, although you should also prepare a light jacket for the evenings.
Take or buy an umbrella: If you want to travel lightly, you can choose not to take your own umbrella and buy one in Hong Kong instead, if needed.
