China Weather in June

June is the beginning of real summer weather in China. The summer heat begins to set in and the temperature rises, with temperatures reaching over 30°C (86°F).

The regions south of the Yangtze River are in peak rainy season. The humidity amplifies the heat and it feels sultry.

In North China, such as in Beijing and Xi'an, there is still not much rain.
