Israel Weather in November 2024: Warm to Mild, Places to Go

By Gavin | Updated Feb. 21, 2024

November sees temperatures drop throughout Israel, but not as much as you might expect, and the weather throughout is still warm or mild. This means November is still the perfect time of year to visit Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and even go diving in the Red Sea.

Israel Weather in November: Overview

Averages:

  • Temperature range: 16–24°C (60–75°F)
  • Rainfall: 5 cm (2 inches)
  • Rainy days: 6
  • Sunshine hours/day: 7.5
  • Sea temperature: 25°C (77°F)
  • Humidity: 36-72% (comfortable at the Dead Sea and in Jerusalem, and more humid in Tel Aviv)

For those visiting Israel from the Northern Hemisphere, November is a great escape from the lower temperatures of Europe and North America. While Israel's November temperatures are lower than those of the summer, you can still expect mostly warm days and an average of 7.5 hours of sunshine a day.

The sea is also still warm, meaning that in November, Israel still gives you the opportunity to go to the beach or go diving. In terms of rain, there are a few rainy days in the month of November, but generally nothing to be concerned about or to alter your holiday plans.

The Best Places to Visit in Israel in November

Israel's weather being warm/mild throughout November means that all the top tourist destinations in the country are great to visit at this time of the year.

Whether you are looking to visit the exciting, buzzing metropolis of Tel Aviv, or learn more about Jerusalem's past at its many incredible examples of ancient architecture, November is a great time of year to do this. It is still possible to head out into the Red Sea to dive, even this late in the year.

1. Spend a Day at Tel Aviv's Museums

Tel Aviv is likely where you'll start your time in Israel, as this is where most international flights come into the country.

For a trip in November, we recommend spending some time walking around in Tel Aviv, but also visiting some of its many brilliant museums. You could start at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, head over to the Ilana Goor Museum, then visit the ANU Museum of the Jewish People, and finally go to the Eretz Israel Museum.

End the night with some local Israeli food at one of the many incredible restaurants in the city, or even go for rooftop drinks to take in the cityscape.

2. Explore Jerusalem by Foot

Given that November's temperatures are pleasant but still warm, we recommend spending some time exploring Jerusalem by foot. There are plenty of walking tour itineraries that you can follow, or one of our Global Highlights experts can put together the ideal tour for you.

Through the Old City, to the Western Wall, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, and the Tower of David Museum of Jerusalem, there is so much to see in this historically significant city.

3. Relax and Float on the Dead Sea

November is a great time of year to visit the Dead Sea, with very comfortable temperatures. For more information on what to during your time there, and to prepare you for your swim, read more in our piece about Israel's Weather in October.

4. Dive in the Red Sea at Eilat

Eilat is one of the best diving spots along the Red Sea, and is a great destination for both beginners and more advanced divers. There is great visibility all year round, and the temperatures in November mean that it is still possible to dive and swim in pleasant waters even though its technically winter.

There are a range of different diving spots, some closer to the shore and a few further out, depending on whether you'd like to focus on seeing colorful coral reefs, or whether you're more interested in diving to a shipwreck. There is something for every type of diver in Eilat.

Low Season: Fewer Crowds and Lower Cost

November is off-peak for tourists, meaning the most popular tourist destinations are less busy with crowds, and you can likely find better deals when it comes to accommodation and travel. This is yet another reason why November is a great time of the year to visit Israel.

Please bear in mind that every Friday evening through to Saturday throughout the day marks the Sabbath in Israel. This is an important day of religious observance and abstinence from work, and as a result businesses are closed every Saturday, also in November.

What to Wear in November

November's weather in Israel is warm, but some cities can see a slight drop in temperatures in the late evenings. This is why we recommend bringing an extra layer of clothing that you can bring along to wear if you end up staying out into the evening.

For the day-time, you'll be happy wearing cotton trousers or jeans with a shirt, or a t-shirt, and in the evening you might want to add a cardigan or a light jumper to this. This is especially the case if you are visiting towards the end of November into early December.

There is still a decent amount of sunshine during the day, and we recommend bringing and wearing SPF, particularly on your face and if you are planning on heading to the sea to dive. For those looking to go on some longer walks, sturdy footwear is also recommended to ensure you can see everything without getting blisters or hurting your feet.
