November ends the autumn and starts the transition to the dry season in Florida. Most of the state sees average high temperatures ranging from 75°F (23.9°C) to 78°F (25.6°C). Most of the storm activity ceases by November, and the weather is pleasant with mild temperatures, a drop in humidity levels, and rainfall. The rain subsides to average 3" (76mm) across the state as the sun breaks the cloud cover for a majority of the time. The sunshine permeates the waters of the Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States with seawater temperatures of 75°F (23.9°C) that make November holidays quite enjoyable. Though the temperatures are mild, keep in mind that the tropical sun of Florida emits dangerous ultraviolet rays even in the mild fall season and be armed with sun protection - drink plenty of water. Overall, keep an eye on stormy weather forecasts before making plans to visit the wonderful beaches and divine waters of Florida!
