Beijing has continental monsoon climate with four distinct seasons marked with a temperate spring (often with sandstorms), a rainy summer, a sunny mild fall, and a cold, dry winter. The yearly average temperature is 50-54oF (or 10-12oC). The coldest time is in January and the hottest is in July.

The best time to visit Beijing is the clear and sunny fall when visitors can enjoy the colors in Xiangshan. Although winter is snowy and cold and not the most popular tourist season, visitors can skate on the Beihai lake, watch the snow on the West Hills, or enjoy the festivals held in many temples. May is also a good season to visit Beijing, as there are a number of international-level performances staged at this time.
