What's the Weather like in Florida in November
November marks the beginning of the drier half of the year in Florida, the United States' most southeastern state. In Miami, which is arguably the most famous city in the state, the total amount of rainfall has dropped to only 71mm this month—significantly less than the 234mm total that was recorded in October. There are 10 days with rainfall this month. The chance that it will rain averages 24% throughout the month and stays basically constant. While thunderstorms were the most prevalent type of rainfall in the wetter half of the year, now, in November, light rain is by far the most common type. It occurs on 45% of the days with rainfall. Moderate rainfall is the second most observed precipitation type and happens on 25% of those rainy days. Thunderstorms still occur occasionally, but on no more than 16% of the days with rainfall.
Related to the amount of rainfall, cloud cover is also much lower than it was during summer and early autumn. It now ranges between 31% and 39%.
The day length continues to decrease in November. November 1 is the longest day of the month with 11.03 daylight hours. November 30 is the shortest day with 10.30 hours of daylight. It is this shortening of the days that is mainly responsible for the one-hour drop in sunshine hours per day compared with the previous month. Now, there are 7 hours of sunshine per day, which is the annual low, also recorded in December and January.
When it comes to temperature, November is still quite warm, particularly when compared with most other states in the United States this time of year. The average temperature is now 19°C. While at night the temperature drops to a cool average low of 13°C, in the afternoon it still climbs to a warm average high of 25°C. These temperatures tend to decrease in the course of the month, though, as the weather slowly moves toward the cooler winter season.
Average Sea Temperature
Swimming is still absolutely possible in November—it is all year round, really—with a sea temperature that averages 26°C.
Florida Hotels in November
Naples, Florida, is a perfect place to spend your November vacation. A particularly great place to stay in Naples is the Edgewater Beach Hotel.

Bars and Restaurants
André's Steakhouse was brought to Naples, Florida, from New York City in the early 90s. This award-winning steak restaurant has won awards for its fine steaks, but also for its fabulous wine list, which is without question one of the best in the city. If you're after beef, this is the place to eat it.
For Italian food, you should head over to the Brio Tuscan Grille at the Waterside Shops in Naples. This is where you can enjoy the delicious flavours from Tuscany, Italy's most stunning region. Its menu features classics, such as pastas, seafood and meat. It is open each day of the week—it's also a great place to go for brunch on the weekend.
One of the greatest restaurants in all of Naples is arguably the Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar. Located on and overlooking the waterfront, this venue consists of three areas—the Upper Deck Bar, Upstairs Grill and Downstairs Café. You can go there from around noon to late in the evening.
Things to do in Florida in November
Naples in November is a warm escape from the cold brought on by winter in more northerly destinations in North America and Europe. This city enjoys a warm climate all year round and its winter is generally dry and warm enough to let you roam the streets and enjoy the Festival of Lights and Celebration of Lights which happen every November. There is the traditional tree lighting ceremony where the Mayor lights the official Christmas tree. This kicks of a series of activities for the festival, all to be held at the Third Street South.
A more star-studded event in November is the annual Naples International Film Festival, which showcases independent and foreign films and documentaries. There are no Hollywood blockbusters here, but instead, independent film makers are given the opportunity to show their creativity in an industry that is otherwise swamped by commercial movies.
If films are not your cup of tea, check out the latest Broadway or ballet shows, opera or symphony at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts while in the area. You might be just in time for a good show. Additionally, the Center also has an art museum.
