Weather in November

Hi,

My girlfriend and I care planning to trip to England and Scotland. We were originaly planning for Sept but due to work stuff we can't do that . We are wondering what the weather would be like in Nov and if that would be a good time?

We are from Alaska so we don't keel over in the cold but we don't want to go all that way to spend to weeks in damp cool weather. We also like to do outdoors activities which are often less fun in cold rain.

British weather is very unpredictable and at the mercy of competing Atlantic/continental weather fronts. As a result you could have a November which is dry and bright and mild. However, the chances of it being damp and cool are higher than if you were coming in, say, the months of May to October. That said, you would be very unlucky indeed to have two whole weeks of continuous cold wet weather - stormy weather tends to pass by quickly and then we'll have a break.

Therefore your best bet is to hope for the best but plan for the worst - there are many great 'indoors' things to see and do in the UK - pubs, theatres, castles, palaces, museums, shopping malls. Also - don't forget there are some great showcaves you can visit across the UK, and converted mines etc which come into their own in rainy weather - so you can be 'outdoors' and undercover at the same time!

England/Alaska/Alaska/England, can't find much difference weather wise!

Let's just say you will feel 'at home' with the weather.
