Sunny Days: 13 days
Cloudy Days: 16 days
Rainy Days: 15 days
What to wear and bring?
In early July
As early July is also part of the ‘Meiyu’ Period, it is sensible to bring along rain gear in the changeable weather. Mosquitoes and other insects are rampant in summer. Insect repellent is a must when travelling in Shanghai in July. In addition, long thin clothing keeps away mosquitos during outdoor activities.
There are more hot days when the environmental temperature is higher than that of the body temperature. In such conditions, exposed skin should be less than 25% of the total. Otherwise, the thermal radiation will make people feel even hotter.
In late July
Sunblock cream, sun hats and sun shades are all necessary in the sweltering summer.
