China Weather Guide

December 11, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 139

Whether you plan to visit a foreign country or move there, you'll want to know about the weather in that location. This will factor into almost every aspect of your plans. When planning a vacation, it will determine which parts of the country you visit, at what time of year you visit, what kind of clothes you pack, and what sort of activities you do while you're there. Those planning to relocate can use this information to choose a location to live, type of clothing to take and how different the climate will be from where they currently reside which may affect adaptation.

In China, an important thing to note is its size. China is so large that its weather is extremely varied and the temperature is never perfect for the entire country at the same time. You'll be able to find climates ranging from desert to semi-tropical.

Since China is in the Northern hemisphere, typically the further north you go, the colder it will be; and the further south you go, the warmer it will be.

The center of northern China has basic hot summers and cold winters. The seasons are typically dry, without an overabundance of rain or snow. Northeastern China is similar, but with a longer winter and shorter summer. In the uppermost northern regions it can get extremely cold during winter. Winter in the north runs from December to March, while summer lasts from May to August.

Western China is very desert like. This causes a huge variance in temperature between night and day. In summer, it gets very hot but the temperature will suddenly become very cool at night. During winter, it gets a little cool during the day, but at night the temperature suddenly drops to freezing cold.

Central China has long summers that are very hot and humid. The highest temperatures tend to reign between April and October. The winter season is short, but very cold.

The Southern regions of China tend to be semi-tropical. There is a lot of rain and it gets very humid. Winter tends to be short in the south, and it doesn't get as cold as it does in the north.

The most important thing to note about China's weather is the monsoon seasons. This is a term for a season with heavy rainfall. It will affect your travel plans in every way. Not only would it prevent you from enjoying yourself once you get there, but if the rain gets bad enough it can even prevent your travel all together.

Monsoons tend to focus on the more tropical, southern regions of China. The humid, rainy season usually starts in April or May, and then proceeds to get worse with a peak in June. In June, the rain season also travels further north. Northern China will receive some rainy seasons from July to August. By October, the monsoon season will most likely have left China for the year. The northwest region of China is typically safe from monsoon seasons.

You want to be sure and plan your vacation or relocation when you will be most comfortable with the climate and will be able to enjoy yourself. Whatever season you prefer, be sure to pack accordingly.

Also, be sure to research the cities in the areas you plan to visit. Some areas of China are more advanced than others. You'll want to know if the buildings in the location you're visiting have heating during winter and air conditioning in summer. Most importantly, you will want to verify if there are areas of the city where flooding occurs so that you can stay away from them.
