Expect rainy weather leading up to Chinese New Year, which begins on January 25. This lengthy bout of showers will start on Tuesday January 21 and likely clear up on Sunday January 26. 

While the weather is dry for now, it's cold outside. The high is expected to linger between 8-10 degrees Celsius (46-50 degrees Fahrenheit) from Monday until Wednesday, with a low of 1-3 degrees Celsius (33-37 degrees Fahrenheit), according to The Weather Channel

Things will warm up slightly starting Tuesday January 21, when the rain is expected to begin. However, the slight uptick in temperature won't last long. The temperature will drop again on New Year's Eve, with a high of 8 degrees and a low of 4.
