Weather in the Algarve in November

Autumn November is generally warm with an average high temperature of 19ºC. November night times, however, can be very chilly at an average low of 13ºC. Rainfall does increase but only to around 50 mm which is unlikely to cause more than a brief inconvenience. It usually falls in brief thunderstorms that come in from the Atlantic. While sunshine levels are good for autumn they are dramatically reduced from the Algarve’s summer sunshine levels. November sees around six hours per day. This is a great time to visit the region to enjoy a sporting holiday rather than a beach bum break, for instance to go walking, sailing or of course golf. There are fewer tourists in this season and accommodation prices are generally lower.
