Xi'an Weather in February 2024: Travel Tips

Written by CindyUpdated Jan. 17, 2021

Weather: February is a cold month, but it is warmer than January. The daytime temperature is around 5 °C (41 °F). The temperature can drop down to minus 3 °C (27 °F) in the middle of the night.

It snows occasionally, and there may be ice on the roads after a heavy snow. So be careful if you are driving in the hills. The dry weather and the surrounding mountains make air pollution a serious problem. Most buildings have central heating, so you can enjoy your time in Xi'an inside.

Clothing: You need to prepare warm clothes such as a down coat, gloves and a hat to keep warm.
