Averages for fuengirola in November
November in Fuengirola can be a nice escape for those looking for a warmer climate and sunny days. The average temperature this month is 14°C (57°F), with the average low at 10°C (50°F), and the average high being 18°C (64°F). The beginning of November brings sunshine, a low chance of rain, and fairly warm temperatures, with the daily average being 17°C (63°F). Temperatures start to drop rapidly as the month goes on, with the daily average in the middle of November falling to 13.5°C (56°F), and the chance of rain increases. The end of November is basically the same as the middle, with the temperature dropping slightly to a daily average of 13°C (55°F). The hottest part of November are the first four days, with an average high of 21°C (70°F) and an average low of 13°C (55°F). The last 10 days of the month are the coldest, with an average high of 17°C (63°F) and the average low dropping to just 9°C (48°F).
While you won’t be spending all day at the beach this month like you would during the summer, there is still an average of eight hours of sun a day, allowing for you to bask in the sun during your daytime activities. The chance of rain in November increases from the months around it, as November is Fuengirola’s rainiest month. On average there are 115mm (4.5 inches) of rainfall this month over the course of 11 days. This is not a significant amount and you could easily not see rain once during your stay, but still something to plan for.
The sea temperature in November is still warm enough to swim in, as the average temperature is 18°C (64°F). This is considered relatively cool water that most people wouldn’t want to spend more than 10-20 minutes in. However, you will likely want a warm day in order to feel the urge to jump in the water in the first place, so if swimming is on your “must-do” list, head to Fuengirola during the first half of November.
The humidity levels are on average about the same in November as they are in October, which is just above 70%. With the cooler temperatures this month, the humidity will not be a nuisance to your holiday.
