Hong Kong 1820 (picture from

The vegetation of China is influenced by a climate with many peculiarities. For the latitude the annual range of temperature is very great; and this is rendered more conspicuous by comparing it with other localities in a similar parallel, as the Philippines, San Blas in Mexico, and Calcutta. A series of observations made at Canton gives 70.4 as the mean temperature, which is below the average. The annual range is is from 29° to 94° [F], and the daily range is also considerable. June, July and August are the hottest months, and their mean temperature is respectively 89°, 94°, and 90° [F]; December, January and February are the coldest, and the mean is 57.5°, 51° and 51.5° [F].
