Cape Town November Weather

November weather – according to Cape Town weather lore, the southeaster blows between November and February. So many people would say November gets windy...

November weather in Cape Town

But it’s also the month when the weather settles into summer. Yay!

It's sunny skies pretty much all day every day and the sun is HOT. Everything summery is in flower -- like the watsonias growing wild all over the veld.

Days are long again – Cape Town sunrise time in November is around 0530 and sunset 1930. Twilight is long, so of course daylight extends beyond these times.

The evening twilight is lengthy and the chill is gone - great for lazy sundowners on Clifton (or any west-facing beach of your choice!)

The rainfall and temperature figures look like this:

Average daily maximum temperature: 24 degrees C (75 degrees F)

Average daily minimum temperature: 13 degrees C (55 degrees F)

Average monthly rainfall 14 m (0.5 inches)

Days with > 1 mm rain: 5

The whales generally depart in November but have still been known to be seen as late as December in False Bay and Walker Bay, near Hermanus.

November and December are prime strawberry picking months, and for that you'll need to head for Stellenbosch!
