Fort Lauderdale Weather in November

The Humidity Breaks and Dry Season begins.

High humidity is gone at this time of year. Fort Lauderdale weather in November is the start of the dry season with warm days and cool nights.

Although still Hurricane Season until the end of the month, the cooler ocean waters make any sort of tropical storm pretty rare. The winds tend to pick up at this time of year so the coast can get pretty breezy some days while the temperature remains warm. The winds also tend to bring in some rip currents so be aware of that when going into the ocean.



November is also the month when many of our fellow northerners start heading down for the winter, particularly at the end, after Thanksgiving.

Average High in November: 81°F
Record High in November: 91°F (1958)
Average Low in November: 68°F
Record Low in November: 26°F (1940)
Average Rain in November: 3.32"


Temperature-wise November 2015 has been typical. We've had a lot more rain and wind than usual which will hopefully break by December.

November 2016 Prediction: According to the National Weather Service this November should be a little drier and warmer than normal.  As far as predictions go, so far they aren't spot on. It's been neither so far.

Fingers crossed for the rest of the season as 2015 was one of the worst years weather-wise we've had down here in the last twenty years. El nino was likely to blame for that with the Northern parts of the east coast experiencing a much better winter than normal.


If you're coming from the great white North, November is the perfect time to experience Fort Lauderdale. Depending on where you're coming from, the temperature may be up to 50 degrees warmer here.

Imagine sitting on your balcony overlooking the ocean and sipping iced tea in shorts and a T-shirt while your neighbours back home are all bundled up and shovelling out their cars.

November is a great month to be down here. So if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to come visit at this time of year don't think twice and just do it!
