Written by Kelly PangUpdated Feb. 4, 2021

Weather: February is one of the coldest months, and it is also starts to get rainy. It feels sharply cold at night due to the high humidity of 82% and the lack of heating in many public places. The average nightly low temperature is 1 °C (32 °F), and the average daily high temperature is 10 °C (50 °F).

Snow seldom falls this month, but a cloudy and drizzly climate is common. Monthly precipitation is 57mm, and it falls on about 10 days of the month.

Pollution: The Quality of Air Index is 103 which is almost good. Pollution decreases markedly in the spring. Check the Changsha weather and forecast>>

Clothing: Since many hotels and restaurants in Changsha have no central heating, dress in layers. Remember to bring an umbrella with you when going outdoors if the weather forecast says that rain seems likely, and wear a coat and thick trousers.

Things To Do in Changsha in February

On cold days, you can shop on one of the inland region's most popular pedestrian street, and eat hot food while you shop. The little Chinese shops give economical prices. Some of the best snacks include stinky tofu, octopus legs, and peanut snacks. The local food is spicy.
