Taiwan's climate is subtropical, and dramatically affected by summer monsoons.
Summer high temperatures (June - August) reach into the high 80's (26°C), while winter lows seldom fall below 55°F (12°C), except in the higher elevations of the mountains, where snow is common in winter.
The rainy season (June - September) brings significant amounts of precipitation, and during this time period, Western Pacific typhoons are a dependable yearly weather phenomenon.
From November through February (even though considered the dry season), fog and drizzle are usually a part of the daily forecast.
