Early November, however, still offers colorful fall foliage in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, the city’s wildest, hilliest park or perhaps you may wish to visit the Bastille Antiques Fair later this month.

Early this month, the afternoon high temperatures are in the mid-50s f (12-13C) with early morning lows mostly in the low to mid 40s f (6-7C).  On a few of the warmer afternoons, the temperatures may reach up into the low to mid 60s f (17-18C).   As the month progresses, the afternoon highs will fall into the mid to upper 40s f (8-9C) with morning lows mostly in the mid to upper 30s f (2-3C) with a few colder mornings dipping down into the upper 20S f (-2 to -3C).

It is always a good idea to pack at least 2 pairs of comfortable walking shoes and given the tendency for wet weather, an umbrella and/or some waterproof gear like a trench coat or windbreaker. In addition, you will need a couple of sweaters and at least a medium-weight jacket or coat.
