The climate of Xi’an (China)
Xi’an is the capital of the province of Shanxi, centrally located in
China. It is one of the oldest cities in China. The city was founded
about 3,000 years ago. Several ancient structures are still a silent
witness to this period: The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, the Drum tower,
the old city wall and the terracotta army that was found here and can
be admired. Xi’an is situated in a transitional zone between a cold
and a warm steppe climate. Summers are warm and wet, winters are cold
and dry. When temperatures start to rise during spring sandstorms may
form. During the summer thunderstorms are not uncommon.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t 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:
