Hello, we are planning a short visit to Lanzhou mid May. How is the weather like?

The weather in Lanzhou mid May is nice. The general temperature ranges from 11 degree to 24 degree Celsius. Generally speaking, it will be ok with shorts and shirts during the day. But I would also suggest bringing few spring clothes, like a thin jacket, etc, in case of the unexpected cooler temperature.
