In genera, Jiangxi province will start a rainy period in April; the most rainfall time is the May and June. After July, you will enjoy fine days, but the climate will change to hot and sunny weather quickly. As for October, the temperature begins to drop, and you will need a coat then.

The climate is always changing in spring and the temperature is not stable. Till mid summer, there is plenty of rain. From mid summer to early autumn, it is sunny, hot and dry. There is rare rainfall in winter.

Nanchang, the capital city of Jiangxi province, has four distinct seasons. The summer is very hot,as one of the “Four Stovepipes In China”, you can imagine the temperature in Nanchang. As a result, you can choose spring and autumn as your travel time. What you will enjoy is abundant sunshine and the annual average temperature is 18°C (64.4°F), with the maximum temperature reaching 41°C (106°F) and the lowest temperature to -15°C (5°F).

Different from Nanchang, summer is the best time to visit Lushan Mountain as the weather is very comfortable and the scenery at its best. It usually has a big difference in temperature from mountain foot to the mountain top. So Lushan Mountain is a good place to avoid the hot weather.
