【20:30】七一回歸25周年傍晚,香港迎來首個由強烈熱帶風暴暹芭帶來的8號風球。天文台今日(1日)晚上7時10分正式懸掛八號風球。尖沙咀天星碼頭一帶風力明顯增強,文化中心海旁位置亦有數名「追風者」觀浪。市民林先生表示,幾年前開始追風,尤愛觀浪,從中感受大自然威力,他指會重視安全,表明只會停留片刻,八號風球生效後便會乘車回家。

暹芭風球|今年首掛8號風球 拆解非颱風暹芭「升呢」超預期之謎

【19:53】強烈熱帶風暴「暹芭」逼近,天文台今日(1日)發出今年首個8號風球。天文台在暹芭生成時,預計僅達熱帶風暴級別,不過最後卻「大跌眼镜」,料明日(2日)增強為颱風。天文台解釋有兩因素令暹芭發展超預期,指出現時南海北部水溫高,以及垂直風切變弱,亦有利暹芭增強。

天文台前助理台長梁榮武表示,由於暹芭的雨帶集中在中心,今早與本港距離較遠,故影響不大;隨着暹芭愈來愈近,故本港開始「橫雨橫雨」。至於暹芭增強程度不似預期,梁同樣指由於現時南海溫度夠,有條件讓暹芭增強。

【19:15】香港天文台表示,按照現時預測路徑,暹芭會在今晚至明早(2日)最接近香港,在本港西南約300公里附近掠過。本港多處地區現正吹烈風,高地間中更達暴風程度。本地會逐漸由東風轉吹東南風,部分地區會變得當風。天文台又料,8號烈風或暴風信號會在明早5時前維持。

天文台指,按照現時預測路徑,暹芭會在今晚至明早最接近香港,在本港西南300公里附近掠過。預計暹芭會有所增強,與其相關的烈風區會在今日稍後靠近珠江口,本港普遍地區風力會進一步增強,天文台會考慮在今晚6時至9時改發八號烈風或暴風信號。

天文台同時更新九天天氣預報,料明日(2日)有狂風驟雨及雷暴,雨勢有時頗大,海有非常大浪至巨浪及有湧浪,初時風勢達8級烈風程度,離岸及高地間中更吹9級風。

【16:30】教育局指,由於香港天文台會考慮在今晚六時至九時發出八號熱帶氣旋警告信號,所有學校今日停課。學校應實施應變措施,確保學生安全,並在安全的情況下,方可安排學生返家。

澳門氣象局︰最快晚間考慮是否需要發出八號風球

【11:53】澳門地球物理暨氣象局表示,強烈熱帶風暴暹芭向西北方向移動,大致趨向廣東西部,於今日晚間至明日(2日)早上最接近澳門。由於暹芭正逐漸增強,並有可能進一步發展為颱風,同時暹芭或採取較偏北路徑更接近澳門,屆時風力將可能達至八號風球風力下限,將視乎其發展及風力變化,在晚間至凌晨考慮是否需要發出八號風球。按目前預測,澳門在今晚至翌日凌晨改發八號風球的可能性為中等至較高。

港天文台︰會否改發八號風球 視乎暹芭發展及本港風力變化

【11:45】三號強風信號現正生效。天文台表示,在正午12時,預料強烈熱帶風暴暹芭集結在香港以南約410公里,預料向西北移動,時速約18公里,大致移向廣東西部沿岸一帶。在過去數小時,暹芭相關雨帶間中為廣東沿岸帶來大驟雨及猛烈陣風,本港普遍吹強風,南部風勢較大。

按照現時預測路徑,暹芭今日大部份時間與香港保持超過300公里距離,預計三號強風信號會在下午5時前維持。隨後會否改發八號烈風或暴風信號,則要視乎暹芭的發展及本港風力變化。

在過去一小時,橫瀾島及長洲泳灘分別錄得的最高持續風速為每小時73及60公里,最高陣風分別為每小時84及80公里。

【11:00】三號強風信號現正生效。天文台表示,預料本港平均風速每小時41至62公里。在上午11時,強烈熱帶風暴暹芭集結在香港以南約430公里,預料向西北移動,時速約18公里,大致移向廣東西部沿岸一帶。

【10:00】在上午10時,強烈熱帶風暴暹芭集結在香港以南約440公里,預料向西北移動,時速約18公里,大致移向廣東西部沿岸一帶。在過去數小時,暹芭繼續向西北移動,其相關的雨帶間中為廣東沿岸帶來大驟雨及猛烈陣風,本港普遍吹強風,南部風勢較大,三號強風信號會在下午5時前維持。隨後會否改發八號烈風或暴風信號,則要視乎暹芭的發展及本港風力變化。

在過去一小時,昂坪、橫瀾島及長洲泳灘分別錄得的最高持續風速為每小時70、68及55公里,最高陣風分別為每小時95、75及68公里。

天文台表示,本港今日吹偏東強風,離岸及高地間中吹烈風,多雲及有狂風驟雨及雷暴,雨勢有時頗大。熱帶氣旋暹芭會在今明兩日大致移向廣東西部沿岸一帶,並逐漸增強,南海北部及華南沿岸吹強風,海有湧浪,其相關的外圍雨帶亦會為該區帶來狂風驟雨及雷暴。

澳門氣象局:改發八號風球機會中等

澳門地球物理暨氣象局今早表示,強烈熱帶風暴暹芭將向西北方向移動,大致趨向廣東西部至海南島一帶,料今日下午至晚間改發八號風球的可能性屬中等。由於預料受菲律賓以東的另一低壓區發展所影響,其強度及路徑未來仍存在較大變數,如暹芭採取較偏北路徑更接近澳門或於近岸加強,屆時不排除改發更高風球的機會。按澳門預測路徑,暹芭明日(2日)將升級成颱風。

由於未來數日正值天文大潮,澳門今日早上至中午內港一帶會出現輕微水浸,而在疊加風暴潮及持續降雨影響下,預測明日早上至中午內港一帶會出現約0.5米以下的水浸。
