The climate of Taiyuan (China)
Taiyuan is located on the banks of the Fen River and is the capital of the province of Shanxi. Nowadays Tiyuan is a large industrial city. Taiyuan used to be of strategic importance to the army because of its situation at the foot of a mountain range. Most tourists come here to visit both the Chongshang monastery and the many temples that can be found in the city. Taiyuan has a cold steppe climate. It is often very dry during spring which gives rise to sandstorms. Summers start early and are very warm. During the summer several heat waves can be recorded. The high precipitation figures during the summer offer no cooling. Winters are long, cold, very dry and sunny. Because Taiyuan is located at a high altitude winters are much colder here than in other places situated at the same degree of latitude.
