Taipei has a monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate (Koppen: Cfa). Summers are long, hot and humid, accompanied by occasional heavy rainstorms and typhoons, while winters are short, generally mild to warm and generally very foggy due to the northeasterly winds from the vast Siberian High being intensified by the pooling of this cooler air in the Taipei Basin. As of the rest of Northern Taiwan, daytime temperatures of Taipei can often peek above 26 degrees Celsius during a warm winter day, while it can dip below 26 degrees Celsius during a rainy summer’s afternoon.
