Averages for Paris in November

Weather overview

November is a very cold time to visit Paris, France, when the weather tends to be wet and the temperatures low. During this month, the average temperature starts off at 9.5°C on November 1st and drops down to 5.5°C by November 30th. Daily highs decrease from around 13°C at the beginning of the month down to 8°C by the end, very rarely exceeding 17°C or falling below 3°C. Daily lows start off at 6°C and fall down to 3°C, only rising above 11°C or dropping below -2°C one day out of every ten.

In recent times, the highest temperature which has ever been recorded in Paris in November is 20°C, with the lowest temperature ever recorded for this month being -9°C. When you compare these temperatures to the average for the month – 7°C – it’s clear that they’re the extremes and aren’t what you should expect to experience during your holiday.

Throughout November, Paris is subject to an average of 22mm of rainfall. This precipitation is spread across 15 days throughout the month, which means it’s highly likely that you’ll experience a shower or two during you’re visit, so make sure you pack an umbrella. Moderate rain is the most expected type of rainfall for this month and usually happens around November 19th. This is followed by light rain which tends to occur around November 23rd.

The likelihood of rainfall steadily increases as the month develops, starting off at 56% on November 1st and rising up to 60% by November 30th. As you’d expect for a winter month, November is subject to foggy conditions on an average of four days. There is a small chance that you’ll experience some snowfall if you visit Paris this month. November 30th is when the probability of snowfall is at its highest, when it occurs in 5% of days.

In November, the average sea temperature for Paris’ closest coastal location is 13°C – that’s 3°C cooler than in October. As you can imagine, this temperature is far too cold to go swimming, so swap your day at the beach for an afternoon at an indoor swimming pool if you’re determined to go for a dip. The average daily humidity for Paris in November is 85%, created by highs of 97% and lows of 70%.

Across the month, Paris enjoys an average of three hours of sunshine each day – that’s half the amount of sunshine each day than in October. Throughout November, the sunshine and daylight hours both decrease significantly, with the day shortening by one hour and 17 minutes between November 1st and November 30th.

Over the course of a typical November, wind speeds fluctuate between 1 m/s and 6 m/s, rarely rising above 10 m/s. The highest wind speed of 4 m/s tends to occur around November 28th, when the highest average daily maximum wind speed is 6 m/s. The lowest average wind speed for this month is 4 m/s which usually happens around November 3rd, when the daily maximum wind speed is also 6 m/s.

Things to do

If the November weather is a bit grey and drizzly, make the most of your Paris holiday by visiting the Musee des Arts et Metiers. This museum is dedicated to industrial design and houses the collection of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers. There are more than 80,000 objects and 15,000 drawings within the museum, only 2,500 of which are on display at any one point. The exhibitions are divided amongst several themes, including materials, scientific instruments, energy, communication, construction, transportation and mechanics. Some of the most important pieces include the original version of the Foucault pendulum, some of the very first planes, the first mechanical calculator and the original model of the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately, all the guides and workshops are only held in French, so you’ll need to bring a phrasebook or rent an audio guide in English.

Another museum worth visiting is the Musee de l’Orangerie. This art gallery features impressionist and post-impressionist paintings in the western corner of the Tuileries Gardens, close to the Place de la Concorde. Despite its large size, the Musee de l’Orangerie only features a small number of masterpieces, many of which – such as Monet’s Nymphéas – are displayed exactly as they were intended to be. Although the museum is most famous for being home to Monet's Water Lillies mural, it also features the work of Henri Matise, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Henri Rousseau, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Chaim Soutine and Maurice Utrillo, amongst many others. If you want to take full advantage of your visit, make sure you sign up for one of the individual English guided tours, follow an audio guide or take part in a workshop.

Located in the heart of Paris, Essaion Theatre is a top pick when it comes to evening entertainment in the city. This small theatre is made up of two rooms, each of which features its own charm and evokes a different atmosphere. The Essaion Theatre’s programming is rich, creative and varied, with numerous musical concerts and theatrical performances put each evening from 6pm onwards throughout the year. The calendar for November 2015 has yet to be released, so check the website closer to the time to see what's going to be on during your holiday.

The Pantheon is one of the most important buildings in Paris, situated in the Latin Quarter of the city. Originally built as a church dedicated to St Genevieve, today the church functions as a mausoleum, housing the remains of distinguished French citizens. Constructed between 1764 and 1790, this landmark guards the bodies of numerous famous people who played an important role in the history and identity of France. You can pick up a one-hour written guide at the entrance and follow it around the historic building, sign up for a 45 minute guided tour – only available in French – or reserve a private guided tour in advance – available in English, French and Spanish.

Located in the 9th arrondissement, Passage Jouffroy is a great place to go to pick up some souvenirs of your visit or gifts for friends and family. This small street is lined by bookshops where you can snap up great deals on second-hand art books, chocolate shops with hand-made treats, toy shops with all sorts of vintage and retro products, cafes where you can enjoy a coffee and old-fashioned clothes shops where you can pick up unique items. The Passage Jouffroy is also home to a small wax museum and an old hotel.
