This post is about the weather in November in New Orleans, including what to expect for temperatures, how much rain, what to wear and things to do.
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER
Early November normally sees the warm daytime high temperatures in the mid-70s F (24-25 C) with overnight or early morning lows in the comfortable upper 50s F (14-15C). Some days will see the mercury rise up into the upper 70s F (25-26C) or even the lower 80s F (27C).
As we approach the end of this month, afternoon high temperatures will more likely be in the mid to upper 60s F (about 20C) with early morning lows near 50 F (about 10C) with a few mornings dipping down into the low to mid-40s F (about 6C).
About once every few years temperatures can briefly dip to 32 F (0 C) or less.
SUN VS. RAIN
About 18 days this month will have sunny or at least partly sunny skies while the remaining 12 days will be mostly cloudy. About 7-8 days will likely have some rainfall with about 3 days having significant rainfalls of 1/2 inch (13mm) or more.
WHAT TO WEAR
The weather can range from summer-like to fall so best to dress for both. It can be warm enough for short-sleeve shirts on the warmer days but a sweater, windbreaker or light jacket will be needed on the cooler evenings and particularly towards the end of the month when evening temperatures can be quite chilly.
