Shenzhen will experience a round of rain and likely severe thunderstorms between today and Saturday as convection patterns influence the weather, the Shenzhen Meteorological Observatory said Tuesday.

Meteorologists suggest residents take precautions as a convection outlook is issued, warning of frequent severe weather in the city.

Influenced by the formation of monsoons in the South China Sea, Shenzhen is expected to see more severe weather and heavy rain during the Dragon Boat period in 2020 compared with 2019.

Around six or seven typhoons are expected to hit the city’s 500-km defense circle, among which three or four will have a direct impact on the city.

The first typhoon to enter the city’s defense circle is expected to arrive in July and will land along the Guangdong coast to the west of the Pearl River Delta and Hainan Island.

The observatory will improve its services by adding weather reminders for high temperatures and heavy fog, and weather forecast will be further segmented into subdistricts.

The weather service is also now available on the iShenzhen app for users’ convenience, media reports said.
