The climate of Shanghai (China)
Shanghai is one of the examples of the fast growing economy in China. This original fishing village has grown into one of the largest metropolises in the world and the most important port of China. Since 2004 Shanghai is even the biggest port in the world, overtaking Rotterdam after many years. Shanghai has a warm China climate with mild winters and warm summers. There is a distinct monsoon here from April till September. Precipitation figures are 150-200 millimeters of rain per month during this period. This often happens in the form of heavy showers with heavy thunderstorms and fierce winds. Because of its situation on the east coast there is a risk of hurricanes (typhoons) here during the third quarter of the year. Winters are drier and colder. During the night temperatures are around freezing point. However, it doesnít get much colder than a few degrees Celsius below zero. During the winter snow may fall. However, the white layer is often only temporary.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
