If you're tired of wearing shorts and t-shirts, you're in luck! It's time to get out your Autumn clothes, if you haven't already.

 

 

Weekend (16-17) forecast: cloudy, dry, and foggy

 

 

You may have noticed that we haven't had any signifcant rainfall in Shenzhen since October 16. That has put the city in a mild drought and made the air a bit dryer than usual for this time of year. In fact, the city has had its Wild Fire Warning at orange since November 6th.

 

For those sensitive to air quality fluctuations, you may want to wear a mask, keep the windows shut and air purifier on, and minimize outdoor exercise.
