Fukuoka Weather 福岡の天気
Fukuoka, situated on the northern coast of the southern island of Kyushu facing the Korean Peninsula, enjoys a mild climate during the winter with hot and humid summers.
Temperatures in Fukuoka can rise above 35 degrees Centigrade in August with little respite even at night. Rain is heaviest during the monsoon period in June and July and the typhoon season in September. Winter temperatures only occasionally fall below freezing with rarely the chance of snow in northern Fukuoka. January and February are the coldest months on average.
The city's location near the coast does allow for cooling breezes in the summer and there are many beaches in the area to escape the summer heat.
Spring and autumn are the best times to appreciate Fukuoka city and its striking modern architecture.
