Climatic characteristics


The small Three Gorges and the small Three Gorges area belong to the warm and humid subtropical climate, which is greatly affected by the canyon topography. Among them, Wu Gorge has a long and tortuous deep canyon, which shows typical climatic characteristics of the canyon and can be used as a representative of the climate of the Three Gorges. Here, the annual average temperature is 18.4 Celsius, the coldest January average temperature is 7.1 Celsius, and the hottest July average temperature is 29.3 Celsius. The annual average rainfall is between 1000 and 1400 millimeters, mostly concentrated in July and August. The mild winter, hot summer, abundant rainfall and distinct seasons are not much different from the Sichuan Basin and the plain of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. However, because the canyon is deep, the sunshine time at the bottom of the canyon is short. In winter, there is only two or three hours of sunshine around noon, and in summer, there are only five or six hours of sunshine. In the canyon, the wind is strong and the wind direction is fixed, mostly the east wind or the west wind along the canyon. Canyon terrain is closed, humid and steaming, easy to become clouds and fog. In summer, thunder and lightning often occur, and heavy rain pours down, which is one of the national rainstorm centers; autumn is sunny, cloudy day is high; winter is more "Mongolian Gorge Rain", often continuous for several days; at the turn of spring and summer, the weather is changeable, "morning clouds and evening rain", and it is a scene.

Wushan small Three Gorges and small Three Gorges have narrow channels, great changes in river flow and great disparities in water level fluctuations. Flood discharge is generally 40,000 to 50,000 cubic meters per second in flood season and 3000 cubic meters per second in dry season. The difference between the highest water level and the lowest water level can reach more than 50 meters. During the flood period, the river water rose abnormally rapidly, and the water level often rose more than 10 meters in a day. The slope of the river bed is large, with an average drop of 1 meter every 5 kilometers, the water potential is turbulent and the eddy turns thousands of times. The flow velocity varies greatly. The average flow velocity in dry season is 4 kilometers per hour, in Flood Season 11 kilometers per hour, and in rapids and dangerous beaches it reaches 16 to 25 kilometers per hour. During the summer flood season, the turbulent river burst out of the tortuous Canyon and poured down thousands of miles. In the dry season, the river flows meandering in the mountains and valleys, making the channel of the Three Gorges particularly difficult.
