What’s the weather like in Rethymnon in November?
The Rethymnon weather in November is perfect if you want cooler temperatures, quiet beaches and a good deal of sunshine. Rethymnon, on Crete’s stunning north coast, is still warm in this late autumn month but the summer crowds have disappeared.
Rethymnon is a peaceful resort on Crete’s pretty northern coast, which is lapped by the Mediterranean Sea. Resorts along the north coast of Crete have a climate one or two degrees cooler, and a little wetter, than those in the south. This is because it’s exposed to northerly winds that move across the Sea of Crete. The island’s central hills shield the south of Crete from these winds.
The weather in Rethymnon in November is very pleasant and enjoys an average daytime high temperature of 20°C. At night time this drops to around 12°C, so you may need to take a light jacket if you’re wandering around the resort in the evening. You’ll experience lots of Mediterranean sunshine during the month, with an average of six hours from 11 hours of daylight. The sun doesn’t set until 5.30pm at the beginning of November. It’s the second wettest month of the year, on average, with 69mm of rainfall across 11 rainy days. The wind speed is low at 9mph and the UV level is low too.
