A lot of places in Western China have low humidity but also harsh winters. Are there any places that have low humidity (comparable to Southern California or West Texas) and mild winters that get less than 6 inches of snow annually on average?

Panzhihua is not too humid, except for July and August maybe.

Yunnan - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yunnan

Northern Guangxi and Guangdong, Southern Hunan and Jiangxi, Western and Northern Fujian. Don't know about humidity but they have mild, subtropical winters.

Yunnan is beautiful, and is the home of several Tibetan-related cultures. The nearby mountains of Sichuan are where the ancestors of California's redwood trees were found, years ago. It's a fascinating part of China.

KUNMING...its south, and high elevation. Perpetual spring-like climate.

Many parts of Yunnan and Guizhou. Very mild weather all year round and not humid at all. No snow. No summer heat. Unfortunately that's the least developed part of China.

Kunming has long been one of my favorite cities, due to the climate.

If development is code-word for smog-infested, I'd take 'least developed' Kunming any day....particularly since all the Chinese cities are filled with pretty much all the exact same things anyways.

The other thing I love about Yunnan is you have a ton more ethnic groups...i.e. similarities with southeast asian peoples...

That's not unfortunate. Let's leave at least some parts of China undeveloped. No need to pave over the whole country.

Yunnan weather is awesome, but there's no job unless you want to teach English for minimal pay. Guangdong has a great winter, usually in the 60's but can swing to 45 degrees at the lowest and low 70's towards the high end. Problem with Guangdong is 6 months of the year is very humid and beastly hot, but the other 6 months are really nice.
