China-Chengdu

Chengdu has a monsoon influenced, humid continental climate with much rainfall throughout the year measuring 870.2mm on average. Humidity is high year round. Winters are cold (the average January temperature is 5.6°C or 42°F) , however milder than these of the lower Yangtze, due to the Qin Mountains preventing the cold Siberian winds from entering the Yangtze Basin. Despite that, near-freezing lows should be expected during nightfall (around 3°C or 37°F) and periods of light frost normally occur in each winter. Hard frosts, with temperatures below -4°C (25°F) are rare, as well as the possibility of snow due to lack of precipitation.

The lowest temperature ever recorded is -6.5°C (20.3°F). Summers in Chengdu are very warm (not hot) and humid, but not to the extent of other nearby cities, such as Chongquing, Nanjing and Wuhan. Highs commonly surpass 30°C (86°F) and the very high humidity makes the heat sweltering. Highs above 35°C (95°F) are very rare and the highest recorded temperature is 37.3°C (99°F). The majority of precipitation falls between May and September, due to the effect of the south-west monsoon. Spring and autumn are pleasant periods and the best times of the year to visit the city. Chengdu is also one, if not, the cloudiest city in China with 24% possible sunshine on average every year.

China-Shanghai

Shanghai's latitude relative to the equator is about the same as New Orleans, Brisbane, or Cairo; the climate is classified as humid subtropical. Summer temperatures at noontime often hit 35–36°C (95–97°F) with very high humidity, which means that you will perspire a lot and should take lots of changes of clothing. Freak thunderstorms also occur relatively often during the summer, so an umbrella should be brought (or bought after arrival) just in case. There is some risk of typhoons in their July-September season, but they are not common.

In contrast, during winter, temperatures rarely rise above 10°C (50°F) during the day, and often fall below 0°C (32°F) at night. Snowfall is rare, but transportation networks can sometimes be disrupted in the event of a sudden snowstorm. Despite the fact that winter temperatures in Shanghai are not particularly low, the wind chill factor combined with the high humidity can actually make it feel less comfortable than some much colder places which experience frequent snowfalls.

In between, spring can feature lengthy periods of cloudy, often rainy, weather, while Autumn is generally mild to warm and sunny.
