The Weather in Philadelphia in November

Updated: October 8, 2023

This post covers the weather in Philadelphia during the month of November, including average temperatures, and rainfall, plus tips on what to pack.

November in Philadelphia starts out mild but becomes more winter-like as the month ends.

Fall foliage peaks near the end of October but often continues into the first week of November and two places you may wish to view the colors are along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Franklin Square Park.

Early in November, the afternoon temperatures are fairly mild near 60 F (about 16 C) but a few days can reach near 70f (21-22C).

Morning low temperatures early this month will most likely be in the low to mid-40s F (about 6C).

As the month progresses the afternoon temperatures will fall and by the end of this month will mostly be near 50f (10C) with morning lows in the mid-30s f (1-2 C).

Expect 5-8 mornings this month with temperatures falling below 32f (0C) with 1 or two of these dipping down into the mid-20s f (about -3C).

About 16 days in November will normally be sunny or at least partly sunny with about 14 cloudy days likely. 

Some precipitation can be expected on about 9 days this month with about 2 days of these receiving at least 0.5 inches (13mm) or more. 

Snow is not normally an issue here in November, however, about 1 inch of snow does fall on Philadelphia about once every 5 years.

What to Wear in Philadelphia in November?

It is best to pack for fall to early winter and dress in layers so that you can remove a layer or two for those warmer days. 

Long sleeves, a couple of sweaters and at least a medium weight jacket or coat are suggested and of course comfortable walking shoes.
