Events ranking #1 and #2 this year are tropical cyclone-related, including the approaches of Lionrock and Kompasu which necessitated the #8 Signal twice, and the approach of Rai in late December which necessitated the #1 Signal. The two events received 122 (96.06%) and 118 (92.91%) votes, respectively. The event placing third is the cold snap at the beginning of 2021, resulting in a temperature of 7.7 degrees at the HK Observatory. This event received considerably fewer votes, at 79 (62.20%).

2021 年最受觸目的事件頭兩位均與熱帶氣旋有關,分別為獅子山及圓規靠近令八號信號兩度發出,及 12 月後段雷伊靠近令一號信號發出。兩者得票為 122 (96.06%) 及 118 (92.91%)。排名第三的事件為年初的寒潮,天文台錄得 7.7 度低溫;此事件得票明顯較首兩位低,只有 79 人 (62.20%) 投選。

10月8至14日: 熱帶氣旋獅子山及圓規接連影響香港,其中獅子山於 10 月 8 日靠近海南島期間令香港風雨交加,天文台一度發出黑色暴雨警告,翌日更發出八號烈風或暴風信號,獅子山距港仍逾 500 公里。10 月 8 日的 329.7 毫米雨量打破 10 月份單日紀錄,而天文台信號更替的決定惹起爭議。10 月 12 日,氣旋圓規橫過南海,八號信號於取消 60 小時多後再度生效,而是次生效時間超過 23 小時。圓規掠過期間適逢漲潮,部分低窪地區出現水浸。

Oct 8 to 14: Tropical cyclones Lionrock and Kompasu affected Hong Kong in succession. There were strong winds and heavy rain in Hong Kong on October 8 as Lionrock approached Hainan; the Black Rainstorm Warning was in force. The #8 Gale or Storm Signal was issued the day after when Lionrock was still over 500 km from Hong Kong. 329.7 mm of rain was observed on October 8, breaking the October daily rainfall record. The HK Observatory's decision on signal changes sparked controversies. Tropical cyclone Kompasu crossed the South China Sea on October 12, and the #8 Signal was once again issued in just over 60 hours after its cancellation. The Signal remained in force for over 23 hours. Kompasu's approach coincided with high tide, and there was flooding at some low-lying areas.

12月20日: 熱帶氣旋雷伊於 12 月 16 及 17 日橫過菲律賓中部,造成至少 400 人死亡。雷伊其後於南海再度增強,成為自有可靠衛星觀測以來該區於 12 月的首個超強颱風 (香港天文台分級)。風暴於南海西部轉向,天文台發出一號戒備信號,是歷來年內最遲發出熱帶氣旋警告信號的一次,而雷伊在冬至日曾距港只有 140 公里。

Dec 20: Tropical cyclone Rai crossed central Philippines on December 16 and 17, resulting in more than 400 deaths.

As the storm recurved in western South China Sea, the HK Observatory issued the #1 Standby Signal, the latest in a year on record. At one point, Rai was only 140 km from Hong Kong on the day of winter solstice.
