Friggin' weather

This morning had a freak thunderstorm that woke me up.
But still it ended up being a few degrees cooler today.
The Hong Kong Observatory had a few interesting things to say recently, first it said Hong Kong's nights were getting warmer because of the trapped heat being released in the evenings.
Then its director said by 2050, our winters would drastically be reduced to a couple of days, and there will virtually be no cold days by the end of the century.
The reason? You guessed it, but also the reason mentioned with trapped heat due to intense urbanisation.
It's something to be worried about, but so long as we don't always have these 30+ degrees and intolerable humidity I'd be happy.
