Fujian Weather

As the region is located in the southeastern coast in China, Fujian has sub-tropical monsoon climate. In summer days, Fujian weather is very hot with rains brought by the monsoon from the sea. In winter, as the cold air is blocked by Mount Wuyi in the northwestern area, the region is warm but dry comparatively. The annual Fujian temperature is around 17~21℃ (63~70℉), and it is rich in rainfall except the winter. May to June are the plum rain months when the most rainfall occurs, and August to September are the typhoon season, which have the second most rainfall. There are many hills, so the vertical difference on climate is big.
