Hi there, this winter will be my second winter in Shenyang. And now in December it is already -10 during the day and -20 in the night so I think it MUST be colder in January. If you are planning go somewhere in the evening you have to buy extra woolen insoles for shoes (very cheap here) and if you are planning to buy clothes here and you are wearing xl sizes you can forget about shopping here as it is very hard to get big sizes. I wear in europe medium sizes here i buy clothes in xxl size. 39 shoe size is almost not possible to buy. Hope that helps guest replied on 2012-12-03
