What to Expect
If October is anything to go by November, at least here in the south could be unseasonably HOT! If not and it just runs to form it will be good and certainly better than the height of summer in many northern European countries. Although weather can sometimes be a little unpredictable as the seasons change. In the north, the weather is mainly cloudy and high seas are almost guaranteed. Average temperatures last year ranged from daytime shade between 22-26°C with a few highs of 28°C here in the south and 14 – 18°C with the odd high of 22°C in the north.
