The weather in Zhejiang features a monsoon season, temperate climate, abundant sunshine and rainfall, humidity and typhoons. The average annual temperature of Zhejiang Province is about 18 °C (64 °F), with an average July temperature of 27-30 °C (81-86 °F), and an average January temperature of 2-8°C (36-46 °F). The annual average rainfall of the province is about 1000mm to 1900mm, and its annual average sunshine time is about 1710 hours to 2100 hours.
Usually spring starts in March, with the average temperature between 9-15 °C (48-59 °F), April and May are the best time for visiting Zhejiang. Meiyu Season (or Plum Rain Season, when rainy days are prolonged) is from the end of June to early July. In late summer, typhoons occur with a high frequency, bringing heavy rains. During this period, umbrellas and raincoats are very important to carry when you travel in Zhejiang. September and October feature excellent weather when clear skies and refreshing air can be enjoyed almost every day. In winter, on the other hand, the city suffers from the cold, since most places are not equipped with heating systems.

Hi Christine, based on the former data, during November the weather in Shanghai will gradually turn into winter. There is a big difference in temperature between days and nights. The average low and high temperatures are, respectively, 8 °C and 17 °C, recommended clothing including a long-sleeve skirt, a coat, and a sweater. While in Zhejiang, the average temperature is about 10 °C, but most of time the temperature is over 10 °C, recommended clothing including a long-sleeve skirt, a coat, and a sweater.
