What’s the weather like in The Gambia in November?
November sees the start of the dry season in the idyllic African country of Gambia. The Gambia weather in November is hot and sunny and the warm Atlantic waters are the perfect place to cool off as you relax by the beautiful beaches at resorts like Bijilo, Brufut Heights and Banjul.
The Gambia has an amazing coastline on the west of Africa, with pretty beaches and bright blue waters. The wet season between June and late October turns much of the landscape green and in dry months, like November, hot weather’s blown in by north-easterly winds.
The weather in Gambia in November sees an average daytime high temperature of around 20°C across the country, so pack plenty of warm weather clothes. This’ll rise by six or seven degrees by the coast, at sun-kissed spots like Bijilo. The humidity’s 41% on average and UV levels are high, which means sunblock is a must. You won’t need a jacket as just a few millimetres of rain may fall, but chances are you’ll see not wet weather at all. There’s around 11 hours of glorious sunshine each day, on average, and it doesn’t set until after 6.30pm at the end of November. The water temperature by the Atlantic Coast in The Gambia’s a very inviting 27°C. The wind speed’s light at 5mph inland, rising to 8mph by the ocean.
