Urumqi Climate - Seasons & Travel Advice

The temperature in Urumqi fluctuates greatly between day and night. The weather of Urumqi is extremely dry due to its geographical location and continental climate. Spring and autumn are short while winter and summer are long. Remote as it is, the local inhabitants fondly call it 'Urumqi' which translates to mean graceful pasture.

Spring here comes comparatively late. Usually the northern suburb of Urumqi has the first touch of spring in late March, the downtown area some two weeks later and the southern suburb ten days later again. Summer is flowery and lush here and lasts typically for about 90 days in the northern suburb and about 60 days in the downtown area. The mild climate of summer makes Urumqi an ideal place for a summer holiday with the average downtown temperature of about 23C (about 73.4F). From late August, autumn comes, a golden season of fruit harvests. In October you will experience fluctuations between day and night temperatures. The weather of the long winter here is cold with the average temperature of around -15C (about 5F), but the scenery makes up for the cold at that time.

The best period for visiting Urumqi is from May to October when flowers are in full bloom and the melons and fruits smell sweet and are ripe for the picking. Dress warmly even when traveling in the hottest month (July and August) for the temperature differences between morning and night. Be sure to bring a sweater and trench coat in May, June, September and October. During the cold winter (November to March), you will need heavy winter wear.

You'd better take enough warm winter clothes, such as thick cotton-padded jacket and down jacket, thermal underwear, woollen sweater, down wadded trousers, snow boot... You should take some medicine, such as Antidiarrheal, gastrointestinal agent, patulin and antipyretics. Remember to keep warm and drink more water.

China weather forecast rain in Urumqi on 13 May 2018.
May I know when it rains, is it drizzles, light rain, heavy rain or thunderstorm? Will outgoing and incoming flights to this city be affected? I am travelling on this date.

There is no dust storm in there on 13 May, right?

Oh, don't worry. The lastest weather forecast indicates that there is no dust storm on May 13th. When it rains, it won't be heavy rain or thunderstorm. Generally speaking, it won't influence the flight or sightseeing. Have a nice journey!
