Beijing Weather & Local Time

Beijing's climate is defined as "continental monsoon." Beijing has distinctive four seasons.
In spring time, Beijing is a bit dusty and windy. Spring is short here and excursions are a popular form of tourism.
Summer is hot, but the hot weather is short-lived, plus, rainfall is plentiful.
Autumn, lasting about 50 days, is the best season for tourism and the temperature is mild and the sun is out a lot.
Winter is long and cold, but the ice lantern shows an skiing still attract many tourists.

The best times to visit Beijing are spring (April and May are nicest) and fall (September and October can be beautiful). Beijing experiences cold and dry winters, with January temperatures falling to -8ºC (17ºF). By July, the city's average highs exceed 30ºC (86ºF) as Southeast Asia's monsoon system pushes hot and humid air northward, bringing with it regular rains.
