Weather in Crete in November

Crete's wet season could be said to start in November when rain can occur on up to 10 days of the month on average. The sunny days are still plentiful and it is warm enough to go to the beach.

The sea temperatures are around 20°C which is still (just about) comfortable for swimming.

The table below lists weather averages in November for 7 towns of Crete.

Note that these weather stations are located near the sea, more or less at sea level and they generally get less rain than inland locations, especially higher up. Temperatures in hills and mountain areas can be considerably cooler.

Winds: Winds are extremely dependant on the specific location at which you are so I prefered to avoid any wind averages because they will be misleading. If you want to study wind statistics for Crete please check the Advanced Wind Rose on this paper.
