Weather in Beijing
The city of Beijing falls in the monsoon region, experiencing
hot, wet summers and cold, dry winters. There are four very
distinct seasons, with a wide temperature variation between winter
(down to well below freezing) and summer, when the mercury hits the
high spots. During the height of summer, July and August, Beijing
is subject to sudden evening downpours of rain, so an umbrella
comes in handy. Spring and autumn are relatively short seasons.
Spring, between February and April, is characterised by warm and
windy conditions. Autumn, between August and October, is regarded
as the best season to visit because it brings blue skies,
pleasantly mild temperatures and slight humidity.
