Since November actually serves as a transitional month between autumn and winter, the weather becomes colder than October. Sometimes, sudden cold snaps hit the city, dropping the temperature to new lows. Rainy days, however, are relatively rare, so humidity is quite low.
Early winter clothes such as thick coats and sweaters, and warm trousers and shoes, are needed to keep warm. Change clothes according to whether you stay indoors or outdoors, to allow for the obvious temperature differences, and avoid catching a cold.
Enjoy the Fall Colors in Shanghai
Generally, in November, the whole city is carpeted by the yellow leaves of gingko plants and the Chinese parasol tree, and this extends into December. So going on an outing to appreciate the splendid scene is a nice option. You can go on a picnic, fly kites, and appreciate the bright yellow leaves in Sinan Road and Century Park, good for a selfie.
