During the cold spell, a government-run facility in Ilha Verde will be open to those who require shelter from the cold.

The falling mercury comes after an exceptionally warm year in Macao and globally – indeed the hottest ever recorded, according to the World Meteorological Organisation

The impact was felt in Macao, which experienced an exceptionally wet summer and the hottest October day on record, with temperatures hitting 35.2°C on 4 October.
