shanghai is very similar climate . shanghai's winter is very chilly, because it's moistry cold. some people from north cant bear the shanghai moistry cold, that seems cold to bones.

Shanghai temperatures do reach freezing and even below during the winter, so I'm not surprised to see snow. However, I doubt they get the blizzards like that massive one that hit New York a year ago.

Global warming has little to do with the humidity levels. Shanghai, like Hong Kong, is very near the ocean, so humidity will be high. A wet cold feels a lot worse than a dry cold. 10C in London feels like -10C in Montreal.

I suspect Shanghai gets a light dusting a few times a year and that's it, right? I don't think you guys get over 10cm at a time and accumulating for over a week.

It is a little surprising given Shanghai's latitude is about the same as the Gulf Coast in the USA. Shanghai gets 4 distinct seasons.

I think the areas where it snows are usually those at high altitudes.

Alabama is still a gulf state Anyway, Shanghai is still far from the Philippines. HK is closer to Manila but winters here are still cool.

Manila's winter is still hot. HK's winter can get down to 14 degrees C but above 7.

I'll be flying to the Philippines this Christmas season and I'm sure gonna take alot of photos.
