Seoul has a humid continental/subtropical climate, which means its summers are quite hot and its winters are quite cold, but the falls and springs are sublime. The coldest months are December, January, and February, with the average lows in the low-20s and the average highs in the mid- to high-30s. The hottest months are June, July, and August with average highs in the low- to mid-80s and the average lows in the mid-60s to low-70s.
During winter and spring, Seoul is susceptible to yellow dust from the Gobi Desert. Coming from Mongolia and China, this forms a haze over the city and creates respiratory problems.
The city receives an average of 53 inches of precipitation a year. Most of the rain falls in the summer monsoon season between June and September, with the wettest months being July and August with a monthly average of 13 inches.
