PyeongChang Tourist Information

Climate of Pyeongchang



The fresh spring air blows in early to our seaside city.

At the end of March or April, the early forsythias and azaleas start popping up, quickly followed by an eruption of spring blossoms.

Pack light clothing along with a few sweaters for good measure.



During the summer, Korea falls under the influence of the high-pressure air masses that develop over the Northern Pacific Ocean, and the weather turns hot and humid, with the average temperature from June to September reaching 20 C.

During the mid-summer, the temperature often hovers above 30 C.

Also About 70 percent of the annual rainfall falls from June to eptember, and monsoon season is usually in July or August.Shorts, cotton tee shirts, thin cotton pants are best to pack.

And bring waterproof clothing and an umbrella if you are visiting Korea in July or August.



Autumn in Korea is cool with summer-like weather often stretching into the end of September.

By October, the air turns crisper in the mornings and the leaves have started to turn their color, but dry.

Evenings are a bit cooler so it's best to pack a light jacket and sweater along with light shirts.



During the winter months, the mean temperature is lower than other regions located on the same latitude, due to the expansion of high-pressure air masses formed over inland Siberia, whose strong northwesterly winds bring dry, cold air into Korea.

Notably, the winter climate follows a predictable cycle of three cold days followed by four warm ones due to the rise and fall of the high-pressure air masses.

To stay warm, you'll need very warm clothes, so be sure to pack thick parkas or coats.
