Written by Kelly PangUpdated Aug. 23, 2021

Weather: May is a good month to visit Changsha weatherwise, but the weather is changeable at the end of the month. It is also an excellent month for Zhangjiajie National Park.

It almost gets hot by the end of the month when summer heat arrives, but at the same time there are thunderstorms and heavy rainfall. The total monthly rainfall is 151 mm.

The average daily high temperature is 26 °C (79 °F), and the average nightly low temperature is a comfortable 18 °C (64 °F). Humidity is 82%, and it is more pleasant weather than the summer.

Pollution: The Quality of Air Index is 92 which is good. Check the Changsha weather and forecast>>

Clothing: Slacks, a T-shirt, and a light jacket is a good combo. Remember rain gear for rainy days. It rains almost half of the days of the month.
