What is the weather in Xian in May and June? Is it uncomfortably hot in June? Much better in May?

It is much better in May. The temperature is around 14℃-26℃ in May. But it is getting hot since June, about 35℃ on average. Sometimes, the highest temperature can reach 40℃. If there is rain, it will be cooler. If you can choose the time to Xian, I recommend May.
