Guangzhou Climate & Weather
Guangzhou Climate and Weather
Guangzhou is part of the Pearl River Delta and has a humid subtropical climate. The city is situated just under the Tropic of Cancer and its generally pleasant weather is a big advantage for travellers. Guangzhou has fairly good weather all year round, with a generally warm and humid climate. As with most of China, the four seasons are clearly felt and delineated. Summers (June to September) are wet, humid and hot, and winters (December to March) are mild and dry. Springs and autumns are temperate and very pleasant, but as spring is prone to rain, autumn (September to early December) is probably the best time to visit Guangzhou. The average yearly temperature is 70-84°F (21-29°C), which gives some indication of how nice it is on average. Guangzhou does experience the Asian monsoon and actually has a lengthy monsoon season from April to September. Although it can be rainy, there hasn't been snow in the city for several decades. The heat and humidity can be a bit overwhelming in summer and good sun protection is required if you are travelling at this time.
