    Corsica Weather for November 2019

    What's the Weather Like in Corsica in November

    Located in the Mediterranean Sea, Corsica is a part of France but actually sits closer to Italy, just above Sardinia. The island draws visitors all year round with its outstanding natural beauty which ranges from beautiful sandy coasts to rugged mountains at the centre.

    Like its neighbours, Corsica experiences a Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny summers and mild winters. November marks the end of autumn and the start of winter on the island, but that doesn't mean that the weather is winter-like. Compared to countries such as the UK, temperatures are still pleasant and outdoor activities can still be enjoyed. Tourists can spend hours viewing the amazing architecture, eating outside of traditional Corsican restaurants, and exploring the natural scenery, even in November.

    Temperature

    The average temperature for this month is 12°C though it often peaks at highs of 17°C which can feel very nice for this time of year. The temperature drops at night, but only to lows of 7°C. Holiday makers can still walk around comfortably on a night as long as they pack some warmer layers to wear.

    Sea Temperature

    Although the weather remains pleasant, sea temperatures have finally dropped too low for most people to enjoy swimming in November and the swimming season is considered to be over. The average sea temperature is just 19°C at this time of the year.

    Sunshine Hours

    In addition, the hours of full daylight are lessening for the winter, so tourists will find more to enjoy about Corsica during the evening and nighttime hours of this season. There's only around 5 hours of sunshine a day throughout the month.

    Rainfall

    The main downside to visiting Corsica in November is that it's the wettest month of the year. There's an average of 96mm of rainfall throughout the month, which is much higher than the summer season so it may be worth checking the forecast! However, if you don't mind the chance of rain, the island is much quieter and more peaceful at this time of year, making it a great time to visit.
