Macau's weather is significantly influenced by the city's position on the Southeast coast of China and its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer...


The territory is located on the Northern boundary of the Tropic belt and has a monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate, just short of being a tropical wet-and-dry climate, but unlike countries in tropic regions, Macau's weather can be divided to fairly distinct seasons:


Winter lasts, roughly, from December to the end of February and is characterized by relatively cool weather.  The sky is typically overcast and occasional cold fronts are experienced, although it may be sunnier earlier on in winter.


Winter temperatures can be low by Macau standards, varying from around 7°C-15°C on a colder day. Snow and frost, however, are very unlikely to form.


Rainfall is uncommon in this season, which means it is a fairly good time to visit, although drizzles can be experienced from time to time...


From March to May, the chance of rainfall increases, and humidity is usually higher. However, it is still a fairly pleaseant season and the rainfalls are normally not too heavy.

Summer in Macau lasts four months, more or less, roughly from the end of May until the end of September.  Temperature ranges between 26°C-34°C with high humidity (often remaining over 60-70% during the day, and even higher at night). These are also the months of the thunderstorms. A typical forecast for a summer day includes hot and sunny conditions, with isolated showers and thunderstorms, but sometimes heavy rain can occur. Macau may be hit by typhoons during summer and early autumn, but these events are not unknown in late spring either.


In October and November the weather is generally sunny, and less rainfall occurs compared to the summer months. They are often considered the most pleasant months because of mild to warm temperatures without the high humidity experienced in spring and summer.


The average annual precipitation is around 2100 MM
