China Weather Overview
Weather is one of the biggest concerns for a traveler to visit a country for the first time. As the big size of China, it is even more important as there can be extremes in climate from North to South especially in the winter. The daytime temperatures in Harbin in the winter would be around -30C (-22F) and night time temperatures be even lower. While the temperature in Shanghai would be over 35C ( (95F) for most of summer. So before you travel to China, it is strongly recommended that you check the conditions first. China is vast, and the climate and conditions vary widely from region to region.
