Spring in the city falls between February and April when the weather is usually variable – hot days turn into cooler nights. A cold wave may come even in late February. When the temperature drops, it is always accompanied by rain. After the low temperature and rains, heavy fog often appears along the seacoasts.

Shenzhen weather in autumn from November to early January is dry and cool. The temperature won't drop until December and it still remains around 20 C (68 F).
