Wheather China Scout Real Estate

Weather in China varied a lot from one place to another and has a Monsoon influence too. Areas north of the isotherm have temperatures below zero degrees and south of it, above zero.

The rainy seasons take place from May to September but it is very common to have abundant rains in summer during warm periods, especially in the north of the country.

Eastern China experiences many climate changes, while the northwest area is not a monsoon region. The southeast monsoon coming from the Pacific Ocean and a southwest monsoon from the equatorial Indian Ocean blow onto the Chinese mainland every year. To put it in a nutshell, we can find in China a drop of temperatures in winter and a semi-wet climate combined with a dry climate during the summer season.
