However, as of press time, the rain in Guangzhou has been intermittent and caused only minor disruptions.

The lack of rain in the city has caused the following hashtag to circulate on Weibo – #广州天气回应暴雨为何没下# (Guangzhou Weather explains why Guangzhou's heavy rain hasn't started yet).

However, many news outlets in the province of Guangdong are reporting that the chance of heavy downpours in Guangzhou remains very likely.
