Weather in Shanghai

Expats relocating to Shanghai will enjoy the spring and autumn months, which are by far the most pleasant. The summer months can be scorching hot; average daytime temperatures reach as high as 95°F (35°C) with 80 percent humidity and lots of rain, so it's good to always have an umbrella. During the windy months of September and October, expats can expect the odd typhoon, while the winter months see temperatures drop below freezing.
