November is a transitional month from the autumn to the cold weather in Vermont that sees low temperatures in the state. Average low temperatures are in the 20°F (-6.7°C) to 30°F (-1.1°C), while the average high temperatures are between 40°F (4.4°C) to 50°F (10°C). Saint Albans in the north averages 29°F (-1.7°C) to 44°F (6.7°C); Montpelier in the center is between 27°F (-2.8°C) to 44°F (6.7°C), while Bennington in the south averages a cold 30°F (-1.1°C) to 48°F (8.9°C). Rain is prevalent in most of the state and registers 3" (76mm) to 4" (102mm). The first snow accumulates in the lowlands and is usually to the tune of 5" (127mm) to 6" (152mm). The skies are cloudy most of the time with periodic patches of dry weather amid reduced sunshine and short days. November is an off-season for tourists as the weather is cold, the summer crowds have dispersed, and the shallow snowpacks in the mountains delay the start of the ski season. Additionally, the end of autumn is prone to cold fronts from the north, and it is not surprising to encounter an occasional snowstorm.
