What’s the weather like in Izmir in November?
November marks the start of winter in Turkey, which means temperatures begin to cool down and there isn’t as much sunshine as previous months. Izmir weather in November tends to be quite wet with more rainfall than usual. However, there’s plenty to do on rainy days thanks to the city’s rich culture and historical landmarks.
The cooler temperatures in November make it a great time to visit if you plan on doing a lot of sightseeing during your stay. Head to the Roman Agora of Smyrna, which is an amazing open-air museum and archaeological site that offers a fascinating glimpse into the city’s past. If you don’t mind the walk, the Velvet Castle is worth a visit with stunning views and ancient artefacts from a by-gone era.
You can expect temperatures of around 19°C during the day with average lows of 9°C. The average rainfall is 127mm spread over nine days of the month. This means it’s likely to rain during your stay but it shouldn’t get in the way of your holiday. It’s quite humid on rainy days at around 69% and winds of up to 9mph. Despite the additional rainfall in November, you’ll still get to enjoy at least ten hours of sunshine per day.
