Abstract : The mean monthly interdiurnal variability of pressure, altitude and temperature over China are computed using surface and radiosonde data obtained during 1951 - 1955. The seasonal characteristics of the weather and climate in China together with the influence of the Tibetan Plateau on the general circulation and upper-air climate are discussed. It is found that the great changes in weather in China in early spring (February and March) and late fall (November) are closely associated with the circulation pattern over the northern hemisphere.
