  1. Day to day weather changes in Shanghai and Beijing’s summer are somewhat interrelated. Beijing will get hot earlier than Shanghai. Around mid May to June, the subtropical high-pressure belt is moving in on Beijing, rendering Beijing hot and dry. Whereas Shanghai is affected by stationary front. During that time the humidity build up. The Plum Rain Season come in from mid June, last about 20- 30 days. During that time Shanghai will experience continuous rain and very high humidity. It is also called molding season because mold grow on everything at home due to the humidity. As soon as plum rain season passes, the subtropical high-pressure belt move south towards Shanghai. Shanghai will enter into a long, dry and very hot summer, dotted with occasional typhoon break. As soon as subtropical high-pressure belt moved to Shanghai, heat wave in Beijing will alleviate when sudden and strong summer rain hit the region. That was later part of July. Beijing usually cool down in mid to late August. But Shanghai will continue experience high temperature until early to mid September.

    In general, Shanghai’s summer is humid and hot. The temperature difference between day and night is very small, sometimes only 2 degree difference. Beijing’s summer is dry and hot, with many downpour to break the heat. The temperature difference between day and night is large, sometimes can be more than 10 degrees difference. It is not uncommon you experience very hot day time and feel chilly at night.
