Guangzhou weather is generally warm and humid all year round without a clear division of seasons. With a humid subtropical monsoon climate, Guangzhou is characterized by warm winters, hot summers, little frost, and snow, as well as sufficient rain and sunshine. A yearly average temperature of 21-29 degree Centigrade makes it a wonderful destination. However, there will be drizzle from time to time in March and April. The humid and hot weather in summer and the high UV radiation is exhausting, so you’d better avoid the hottest months from June to August.
