The Weather in Charleston in November

Updated: October 8, 2023

The month of November is an excellent time to visit the historic city of Charleston as the weather remains fairly mild but with several fall-like days. 

This month you might want to attend the Harvest Festival at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center or perhaps stop by the Charleston City Market.

Afternoon high temperatures early this month tend to be in the low to mid-70s f (22-23C) with late night and early morning lows in the low 50s f (10-11C). 

A few afternoons could rise into the mid to upper 70s f (24-25C) or even on rare occasions reach near 80f (26-27C).

As the month progresses, the afternoon highs will fall to the mid-60s f (18-19C) range.

Early morning lows are mostly in the mid-40s (6-7C) range with a couple of mornings dipping into the mid-30s f (1-2C). 

On average, about one day this month will see a morning low of 32f (0C) or less.

About 18 days this month will be sunny or at least partly sunny skies and 12 days mostly cloudy.

Rain will fall usually on 6 or 7 days, however, significant rainfalls of 0.5 inches (13mm) or more occur only on 1 or 2 days this month. 

Snowfall is unlikely this month in Charleston.

What to Wear in Charleston in November?

Weather-wise, Charleston in November is mild but turning fall-like as the month progresses.

You may need to pack some summer clothes for the warmer days; however, a couple of sweaters and a light or medium-weight jacket or coat will also be needed for the cooler days towards the end of this month.

While you are in Charleston, November is a good time to join one of our walking tours like the Historic Charleston tour or our Charleston Architecture tour.
